For CHART 2021, BERG Contemporary presents a new exhibition by Hulda Stefánsdóttir, furthering the artist’s investigation into what constitutes a painting and the various ways we can understand ideas of medium and context. Furthermore, BERG will introduce Dodda Maggý, a female multimedia artist of a younger generation, currently making waves in Scandinavia.

Dodda Maggý (IS)

Dodda Maggý’s audio-visual works explore the complex artistic language of time-based media. In an attempt to externalize the internal dimensions of dreams, memories, and imagination, Maggý’s practice spans across installation, film, music, sound art, and silent moving imagery. The works often carry a lyrical sensibility and a highly personal emotionalism that borders on the fantastical. She approaches the visual in a musically composed manner, using timing, rhythm and flow in a way that blurs the typical distinction between music and image.

Dodda Maggý (b. 1981) lives and works in Reykjavik. She studied fine arts and musical composition in Iceland and Scandinavia and her work has been exhibited widely. Notable exhibitions include: the National Gallery of Iceland, ARoS – Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Scandinavia House in New York, Yale University in New Haven, and the National Gallery of Denmark.
