ELÍN HANSDÓTTIR










                                         
                                       










Elín Hansdóttir works across several disciplines including installation, sculpture and photography. She often creates in situ immersive installations that cast light on one's perception moving through unfamiliar and seemingly displaced spaces, providing a reference system for self-reflexivity. This reconfiguration of space oftentimes sways between the physical and psychological effects of uncertainty, loss of orientation, sensorial limitation or visual illusion. Her work explores the experiential (perceived and subliminal) content of spacial emptiness and gravitates towards a conception of many worlds within a world. She has created and installed work in a number of international venues including KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Hamburger Bahnhof, ZKM Karlsruhe, Frieze Projects, The Marrakech Biennale, the National Gallery of Iceland and the Reykjavík Art Museum.

She currently holds a residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien 2021/2022 in Berlin.
