Join us at the opening of Metamorphic, an exhibition by Katrín Sigurdardóttir (BFA 1990), SFAI’s Harker Award Artist-in-Residence.

In her evocative sculptures and installations, Sigurdardóttir explores the way objects, structures, and spaces define perception. Examining distance and memory, she mines the forms and methods of architecture, archeology, and geology. While alluding to real locations, her work dissolves traditional representation to reach elusive and untethered experiences of place.

In the Walter and McBean Galleries, Sigurdardóttir’s works are placed within a large surface installation, produced in collaboration with current SFAI students, where the participants contribute their own histories in parallel with her sculptural objects. Through this collaboration, Sigurdardóttir seeks to bring in additional narratives of place, allowing for the direct imprint of exhibition visitors, whose presence will augment the surface throughout the duration of the exhibition.

Metamorphic is curated by Hesse McGraw, SFAI Vice President for Exhibitions and Public Programs; and organized with Katie Hood Morgan, SFAI Assistant Curator and Exhibitions Manager.
