D19 – Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir, Hafnarhús. Final exhibition weekend.
The D19 project, Hops Hopsi, is a 10-channel video installation created in 2010. The title of the installation is borrowed from the names of two clowns (Hop and Hopsi) who were once key characters at an amusement park in East Berlin Spreepark, which has been abandoned since the turn of the last century. The artist Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir (b.1973) has been working and showing her work through films, performances, and installations since 2004. She holds a Master of Art degree in Design for interactive media from Middlesex University, London, and bachelor degrees one in social anthropology from University of Iceland, and the other in visual art from Icelandic Academy of the Arts. Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir currently lives and works in Reykjavík and Berlin.
The artist has been invited to exhibit her installation, Hops Hopsi, at the Kalmar Konstmuseum in Sweeden next year.
