SHOWCASING WORK BY Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir, Erling T.V. Klingenberg, Hekla Dögg Jónsdóttir, Pall Banine, Ragnar Kjartansson and Sirra Sigrun Sigurdardottir
Sundogs bring together the work of six emerging and mid-career Icelandic artists. Through a variety of approaches, including video, installation, performance, sculpture, and photography, these artists draw inspiration from the theatre of the commonplace, investigating facets of everyday life in their native land and within an increasingly global community.
Sundogs is curated by the Kamploops-based David Diviney and serves as a continuation of his collaborative research with Icelandic artists and institutions that began in 1997. A version of Sundogs will be presented as part of Núna (now), a showcase of art-making from both Icelandic and Canadian communities, in Winnipeg in May 2008.
