On Friday the 11th of November at 13:00 pm an open lecture by Ólöf Nordal will be held at the Department of Fine Art, Laugarnesvegur 91.
In her work Nordal deals with Icelandic history and the collective memory of a nation in a critical and analytical way. Her artistic research has been focused on the self-identity of a nation in postcolonial times, the origin and the reflection of national motifs in the present and the fragment as a mirror into the past.
Nordal has made several permanent works in public spaces, sculptures, 3D animation, photography and installations, beside cross disciplinary work with architects, composers and in theater productions.
Ólöf Nordal lived and worked in the US where she also studied at Cranbrook Academy of Art, MI and Yale University School of Art in New Haven, CT.
The open lectures at the IAA are free of charge and open to everyone. The lecture will be held in Icelandic.
