OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY MAY 29TH FROM 5.00-7.30 PM
STEINUNN THÓRARINSDÓTTIR / PLACES / 29.05.-20.06.2015

Gallery Christoffer Egelund proudly present the exhibtion PLACES by the Islandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir.

Walking into Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir's Reykjavík studio can be a little disconcerting at first, even daunting, as if you had crossed a threshold of some kind and entered another dimension, another world. It is also astonishing. The crowd of life-sized and partial figures of plaster, cast iron, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze and glass encountered throughout the several rooms seem to be a special breed of beings, anonymous, androgynous, part human, part alien. Scattered about the studio are also many sculptures of beautiful wings, surely a sign of visitants from other worlds. Some of these figures are free-standing, others are hung on the walls or seem to emerge from them. Still others were placed on pedestals while the unfinished pieces were stretched out on tables as if anaesthetized, waiting to be awakened by the artist's transformative, animating touch.
