Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson: Everyday Fortune
We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition of our resident Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson: EVERYDAY FORTUNE
opening: 19/10/2017 from 7 p.m.
The Icelandic artist Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson exhibits paintings, ink drawings and prints on paper, textile and bath mats made during his residency period at PRÁM Studio as well as a publication in collaboration with KudlaPress.
The installation that consists of dozens of paintings on bath mats forms a kind of mind map; a set of ideas and images from the everyday that portray the artists personal mythology. Through the abstraction of everyday moments Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson looks at how our everyday environment as well as our fundamental needs, beliefs and superstitions shape our iconography.
Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson lives and works in Reykjavík. He obtained his masters degree from the department of fine arts at Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerranée in 2013 after having studied at Iceland Academy of the Arts.

They’ve set up shop in various galleries and museums in Reykjavík and New York. In relation to this he has been running the printmaking workshop at the Iceland Academy of the Arts.
