Library Shelf Location 18.GUDD
Publication Date 2014

Icelandic sculptor Sigurdur Gudmundsson moved to Amsterdam in 1970. The photo works he began to produce around this time reflected conceptual tendencies like the Fluxus movement. His approach to themes like man and his relationship with nature, or man’s struggle with existential issues, comes across as highly personal, distinguished by its witty yet melancholic undertone. Like many conceptual artists, Gudmundsson concerns himself with the artist’s action as a work of art in itself; his photo works thus become poetic contemplations of the world around him. With essays by Kristín Dagmar Jóhannesdóttir and Lily van Ginneken, plus an interview with the artist.
