“DON’T KEEP IT BOTTLED UP. YOU WILL EXPLODE!”

Artist talk: Harpa Rún Ólafsdóttir (Iceland)

When Harpa Rún Ólafsdóttir was eight years old, she already knew she wanted to be an artist. Ten years later — clearly a goal determined person — she had one of her most memorable moments as an artist:

When I was 18 I had my first exhibition, a very small exhibition in a culture centre. I was watching the news on TV a few days later and the anchor looked right at me and said … Harpa Rún Ólafsdóttir is a young artist … I had no idea I was about to be in the news. It was a very surreal feeling.

Today, her artistic goal is to constantly evolve and stretch out of her artistic comfort zone. And never to stop.

There seems to be plenty on the schedule for this dynamic artists as Harpa recently joined muses.is and is about to do a collaboration with other Nordic artists. To learn more about Harpa, read Konsthopp’s latest artist talk here.
