Örn Alexander Ámundason: Foregroundskeeping
7. júní 2017 – 18.30
KEX Studio – Facebook event
Ámundason has spent the past six weeks in the studio of Kunsthalle Exnergasse. Six long weeks, that’s more than 40 days. It’s a lot of time to make calculated decisions and interesting choices. It’s a whole lot of time to experiment, go berserk, do something out of this world. It would’ve been great if he had done something like that.
Örn Alexander Ámundason’s (b. 1984) work often deals with either the act of creating or presenting work and the problems involved with these actions. He often works with non-traditional materials to create products that have undesigned forms and lack content. His works often have a sense of performativity and have a feeling of being leftovers. Örn studied at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien and Malmö Art Academy where he received his MFA in 2011.
