We are pleased to announce an exhibition Bitten by a radioactive artist by Saga Unnsteinsdottir on October 26 (Thu) to 28 (Sat), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Saga Unnsteinsdottir graduated in 2012 from FB Breiðholt Collage with an Icelandic Students’ Prof in Visual arts and from Lasalle Collage of the arts, Singapore, in 2016 with a BA(hons) in Fine arts. During her studies Saga specialized in Painting but has worked in multiple mediums; Illustration, Video and installation.
Borders and play are themes through out a lot of Saga’s work up until now. Where she is interested in the idea of transformation – things contradicting or even resisting themselves -.
Questioning the stability of what surrounds us in the everyday, exploring or experimenting with just how easily thing could be altered beyond recognition.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Because Arachne was no longer human her weaving was not of consequence to the gods.
Reading between the lines the Greek myth of Arachne brings up some questions on the nature of art.
How do we as a people come to see some labor as art, is art not like an animal impulse?
Maybe only god should make that distinction.
