STEINUNN – GUIDED TOUR AND PERFORMANCE. Kjarvalsstaðir - Saturday 5 December 2 p.m.

You are invited to a guided tour with the designer Steinunn Sigurðardóttir and an unexpected performance at Kjarvalsstaðir Saturday 5 December at 2 p.m.
With timeless design and discerning professional sense, Steinunn Sigurðardóttir has established her place as a world-class designer. Her artistic creation builds on years of collaboration with many renowned contemporary designers and a rare knowledge of material texture and three-dimensional shaping. Rooted in the folk traditions of the art of knitting, Steinunn Sigurðardóttir has shaped her own world of subtle nuance, reminiscent of the hardy but delicate flora of Iceland. Steinunn’s design interlaces folk heritage with mystic lava-field shadows, foaming cascades, soft moss, soft soil, and roiling magma – wellsprings urging Icelandic artists to deeds of art, music, poetry, writing, film, and photography since time out of mind.
