We welcome you to an all-new solo exhibition by Sigurður Guðjónsson at BERG Contemporary, titled Unseen Fields.
Please keep health and safety regulations in mind when visiting, only ten people are allowed in the gallery at any given time. We kindly ask you to wear a mask during your visit.

Sigurður Guðjónsson (b. 1975) studied in Copenhagen, Reykjavík and Vienna. He started his exhibition career at the turn of the century on the vibrant artist-run experimental scene in Reykjavík that has fostered new art in temporary venues all over the old city. His dark and hypnotically moody videos immediately set him apart and attracted attention not only in Iceland but also in Berlin, New York, London, Beijing, Seoul, and wherever they were exhibited. With more than twenty solo exhibitions and dozens of groups shows and festival screenings, his works have found appreciative audiences around the world.

Sigurður Guðjónsson was awarded the 2018 Icelandic Art Prize as Visual Artist of the Year for his 2017 exhibition Inlight. His newest work Enigma is currently scheduled for exhibitions at Kennedy Center, DC, Adler Planeterium and Carnegie Hall, among other exhibition places in 2019.

Sigurður Guðjónsson exploits the potential of time-based media to produce pieces that rhythmically engage the viewer in a synaesthetic experience, linking vision and hearing in ways that seem to extend one’s perceptual field.
