Drawing installation on wall and newsprint, part of the exhibition Sniffer.
Sniffer is a collaboration project between Sigga Björg Sigurðardóttir and Erica Eyres. "Sniffer was born in the month of June, thus making him a typical Gemini.
Abandoned by his parents at an early age, he spent his youth wandering
the streets, aimlessly searching for food and love. All his life,
Sniffer has suffered from a severe split personality (which is common
amongst the Gemini), and has endured much pain and suffering throughout
his quest for belonging…The artists present Sniffer in an installation that
includes collaborative and individual works in painting, sculpture and
video. These works form a narrative around a character “Sniffer” -
an absurd, grotesque version of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. As part of the exhibition Sigga and Erica have also created a publication
that brings together drawings and texts to offer insights into the
tragic life of Sniffer. “Who is Sniffer? Where did he come from? And what has he done to this house?”
Below are images of a drawing installation Sigga Björg did for Sniffer at the ASÍ Art Museum and videostills from a collaborative videopiece.
