„Dazu bezieht sich die in Berlin lebende Künstlerin auf eine große Tradition: „Beim Nachdenken über venezianische Masken ging es mir darum, einen Aspekt zu integrieren, der uns vertraut ist: zu enthüllen und zu verdecken.“ Und genau in diesem Spannungsfeld bewegen sich mehrere ihrer Projekte.“

Artist biography

Borghildur Indriðadóttir is an artist born in Reykjavík and partly raised in Berlin. She studied at the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts: visual art, painting, drawing and analogue photography and received her Bachelor degree from Listaháskóli Íslands (LHÍ; Iceland Academy of the Arts). Afterwards, the artist worked as a performer in well-known performance expos such as at Schaubühne and in Volksbühne Berlin. She obtained her Masters at the Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK; Berlin University of the Arts) in architecture. Her practice involves the dimension of ritual, dealing with architecture and performance through sound - color - light - and atmosphere. Within this framework, her site-specific installations implement different discourses effectively to the respective space. Her research on gender, social structures and power roles is combined with cinematic elements. From a young age, Borghildur worked in collaboration with various artists, curators and directors mainly in Europe. The artist is known for her performance exhibition "Demoncrazy - Drosophila” opening the program of the Icelandic Arts Festival depicting powerful young women in front of past paintings by men in power positions of public institutions — a recurring topic she constantly investigates and discusses. Borghildur developed the exhibition series such as HAH Editions, Terminal Exhibitions and the newly formed Terminal X operated from Berlin and Reykjavík. Her ultimate goal is to fly to the moon, return the missing rock and perform for the stars.

Borghildur is a member of SÍM: the Association of Icelandic Artists since 2020
Borghildur is a member of Arkitektafélag Íslands: the Association of Icelandic Architects since 2021
