          Sigurður Guðjónsson premieres a new video work at the North Atlantic Pavilion as part of the Liverpool Biennial, 2012. Prelude draws the viewer into a sound-space and visual world in which repetition and rhythm create an atmosphere referring to cultural background and mental state. Guðjónsson (b. 1975) is a visual artist from Iceland, working primarily with video and photography for his installations. He studied at the Academy of fine arts in Vienna and the Iceland Academy of the Arts. With equal attention to music and image in his atmospheric films, Sigurdur’s work exudes mysticism, desolation, the grotesque and the bleak, and reflects a tangle of emotions that are universal and timeless. The inaugural North Atlantic Pavilion brings together artists from Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands as part of City States at this year’s Liverpool Biennial. Hosted in the former Royal Mail Sorting Office at Copperas Hill, the exhibition features new works from artists including Sigurður Guðjónsson (Iceland), Hanni Bjartalíð (Faroe Islands) and Jessie Kleemann (Greenland). The preview event on Sept 14 also features a live performance of Sassuma Arnaa / The Mother of the Sea by Jessie Kleemann, Iben Mondrup and Niels Lyngsø. The exhibition showcases installations, performance and moving image works by artists from countries in the North Atlantic. Their work challenges and dissects the tensions that exist in embracing a strong national and regional identity – focusing especially on work that questions the received notions and surface appearances of what ‘hospitality’ means. The geographical region explored in the pavilion represents a unique interaction of diverse localised cultures spread over a vast area that, all at one time in recent history, has been officiated over and represented to the outside world by the Danish Flag. The North Atlantic Pavilion asks how, in a world being transformed by the digital era, nationalism and regional identity remain constructs of mythical narratives implemented on specific artifacts: artifacts that will be exposed to further acts of territorial negotiation in the context of Liverpool Biennial 2012. A publication, featuring essays by Niels Lyngsø, Gudmundur Oddur Magnusson and Kinna Poulsen will accompany the exhibition.

              Floating sculpture in an Icelandic river A floating sculpture. This project explores sculpture, image and speed, what moves, what gives the illusion of moving if it is the viewed moving or the viewer. If motion is relative On the other hand, we may repeat our paths, think we are moving, yet each day we repeat the path we take and end up in the place where we started. --- Following a 2006 competition for a sculpture in Fljótsdalur, in east Iceland, this large project was completed in the late summer of 2008. A casting of 6 tons of polyurethane foam and 40 feet long, this work has its place in a river in Fljótsdalur, Iceland.
