The Artist 

Elín Hansdóttir (b. 1980) works in numerous disciplines, including installation, sculpture, and photography. She often creates immersive in-situ installations that address one's own perception by moving through unfamiliar and seemingly out-of-place locations. In doing so, the installations offer an orientation system for self-reflection. This redesign of spaces vacillates between the physical and psychological effects of uncertainty, disorientation, sensory limitations, or visual illusions.

The Icelander's work revolves around confusion, the manipulation of the senses, and the concomitant deception of perception. In her installations, for example, Hansdóttir uses altered and reduced lighting conditions to create alien environments. The architectural system within which we usually move is manipulated and we ourselves are deprived of reliable constants. In this way, the artist subtly dislocates the spatial structure by means of dissolved contours and causes feelings of irritation, uncertainty, and disorientation.
