Erna E Skúladóttir

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 2 January - 30 March 2018

Erna E Skúladóttir
is an Icelandic visual artist, living and working in between Norway and Iceland. She holds an MA degree in Fine Art from Kunst- og designhøgskolen i Bergen (Bergen Academy of Art and Design). She has been a part of “Topographies of the Obsolete”, an international research project, and has an ongoing collaboration with artist Karin Blomgren.

Recent exhibitions include collaborative work for the Parcours Céramique Carougeois International Biennial in Switzerland and Tendenser 2016. Her work has been exhibited at Hafnarborg (Iceland), Gallery F15, Visningsrommet USF, Bergen Kunsthall, KRAFT and the British Ceramics Biennial. Upcoming shows include “Beyond the Object” at Uppsala Konstmuseum, Sweden in June. 
Erna is currently working on her project “Landscapes of Transformation: Illusion of Stability”, a site-specific project based in ceramics and geology where she investigates transformation and fluidity of raw materials.

“In my work I examine relationships between the real and fantastical nature of change and transformation. I do so through observations, followed by manipulations of landscape, architecture and natural materials. ‘Landscapes of Transformation’ (such as cracks and layering of materials) that speak of a duration of any kind receive special attention – in particular where the fluidity and fragility of a solid matter is exposed and stability can be revealed as an illusion. It is in the tension between different manners and tempos of natural movement that I find my inspiration – all materials flow in cycles; rocks as well as water.”
