Elín Hansdóttir (b.1980 in Reykjavík) works across several disciplines including installation, sculpture, and photography. Drawing inspiration from the exhibition venue, the artist often creates site-specific, immersive installations that take many forms, including auditory or optical illusions, labyrinthian tunnels, and motion-activated architectural elements, all of which place the viewer in control of their own experience. Hansdóttir has had major solo exhibitions at the Reykjavík Art Museum and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, and has a BA from the Iceland Academy of the Arts and a MA from the Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (KHB). Hansdóttir lives between Reykjavík and Berlin.
