Katrín Elvarsdóttir (IS)

Katrín Elvarsdóttir’s photographic work dwells on the margins of reality and fiction, representing a sense of nostalgia and re-experience. Her images test the myriad meanings that lie within any sort of archival memory-making, as well as the concept of linear time within storytelling, challenging the idea that events constitute our sense of personal history.

Katrín Elvarsdóttir (b. 1964) studied fine arts and photography at Brevard Community College and the Art Institute of Boston. Her work has been exhibited worldwide, in institutions such as Forum Box in Helsinki, The Museum of Photography in Seoul, Kunstlerhaus Vienna, The National Gallery of Iceland, Landskrona Foto in Sweden, and Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt.
