Saga Unnsteins, born in 1992. Icelandic, internationally based artist educated in Visual Art, FB, Reykjavik, Iceland (2012), and Lasalle Collage of the arts, Singapore (2016).
Work with Multiple disciplines and mediums, drawing inspiration from many ideas and concepts but always invested in the idea of boundary breaking, hierarchies and the idea of animism (or the inherent value of things).
Saga’s works have so far been displayed in various group and solo shows in Iceland, Singapore and in Japan.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
This is how I sleep at night after a day of playing spider.
These drawings grew out of those calm nights before themselves became even more still dreams in the nights to follow.
It all blends together; sleep, play, work. I had all the time in the world and this is what happened.
