Love you are love
All the love you need is within you
Feel it smell it see it touch it
The space you are in right now is loaded with love
Magnify it beyond the space
And listen to your sound of love
Like quantum mechanics
Our love hormone is here already
Let’s multiply our love energy
Together with Earth
We are one
Land Self Love
In the exhibition Land Self Love, artist Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir explores the trajectories of love, ownership and self-expression through her own physicality, in a quest of finding balance between her Eros and Thanatos.
Her journey becomes a physical expedition through the territory of the love within. Her approach to the subject is sober as she peels through the fragile layers of various stimuli and situational challenges. The exhibition is a documentation of these processes, where the viewer enters a temple of self love; Land Self Love – Your Self is Land of Love; and is confronted with a palette of perspectives and degrees of engagement in the artist’s work. The artist surrenders to the voyeuristic gaze of the viewer, takes ownership of that gaze as she leads the way to total empowerment through self love.
Katrín Inga is unafraid to explore clichés, curving out a space of feminine aesthetics in our patriarchal society. Persistently she addresses love and sexuality in a therapeutic manner, trusting, vulnerable she puts all her love in your hands,
feel all her love,
she already feels all your love in her universe.
