Borghildur is born in Reykjavík, 1987. She is a site specific & time based artist from Iceland growing up partially in Berlin. She studied at the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts: visual art, painting, drawing and analogue photography. She received her Bachelor degree from Listaháskóli Íslands (LHÍ; Iceland Academy of the Arts). Thereafter she worked as an actress in several performance expos for example at Schaubühne and Volksbühne that started during her studies in Berlin. She obtained her Masters at Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK; Berlin University of the Arts) in architecture. Her artistic practice involves the dimension of directing, dealing with architecture and performance through sound, color, light, and atmosphere as her topics currently combine research on gender, social structures and power roles through the expression towards cinematic elements. Borghildur has since a young age worked in collaboration with various artists, curators & directors mainly in Europe, such as at Studio Olafur Eliasson. Borghildur is known for her performance expo "Demoncrazy - Drosophila" on the program of the Icelandic Arts Festival depicting powerful young women in front of past paintings of men in power positions in public institutions, a reoccurring topic she is investigating and commenting on. Borghildur developed exhibition series such as HAH Editions and then Terminal Exhibitions with the newly formed Terminal X operated from Berlin.
