On-going:, 14th of April – 6th of May 2012, Kling & Bang (Reykjavik)
Somehow — spring usually brings out my inner demons. And sometimes I´m lucky enough to meet some of them — unexpectedly — on my way.
Sigga Björg creates a mysterious world of all kinds of creatures in her latest exhibition: ” – 33 ” at Kling & Bang Gallery. Up to this point, the artist´s creatures have been anonymous but now you can meet and even buy the little devils.
Please, let me introduce; Max, Gaab, Dianna, Jacobb, Benedict and Najim.

I´m going to end this short entry with a text from the exhibition catalog under the heading Looking the Devil in the Eye by Goddur:
“Demons, fiends and devils visit our dreams and visions. They appear on everyone’s inner hemisphere. So do angels, nymphs and little elves, flashing before us on the peripheries of our vision. However, very few are willing to acknowledge this and accept it, let alone draw it on paper and thereby transfer the vision into this world. Most people dismiss it as fantasies and hallucinations, ashamed even to mention that it happened. Nevertheless, the devils and demons symbolise certain things. They harbour our hidden impulses and feelings.”
— Guðmundur Oddur Magnússon (Goddur)
Today is the last day to look the devil in the eye!
