Þór Sigurþórsson

þór Sigurþórsson (f. 1977) býr og starfar í Reykjavík, Íslandi. Þór vinnur oft með efni og hluti sem hann sækir. Tölvuskjáir, rúðuþurkur og höfuðpúðar fyrir bíla eru meðal þess sem hann hefur notað í list sinni. Hlutir sem við venjulega myndum ekki taka eftir raska núna sjónrænum og náttúrulegum hefðum; því sem var eðlilegt hefur nú verið snúið á hvolf og við verðum að byrja upp á nýtt.

þór Sigurþórsson (b. 1977) lives and works in Reykjavik, Iceland. Þór often works with materials and things which he picks up. Computer screens, window scrapers and car head rests are among the items he has used. Things which we normally would not notice now disrupt our visual and natural habit; what was natural has now been turned upside down and we must start anew.

Um verkið:

Verkið sem er sérstaklega búið til fyrir Multis, er tölvuteikning af vösum, prentað á plexigler og tekið innan úr tölvuskjá. Áferð plexiglersins og lögun gefa vasanum þá áferð að vera einhvers staðar á milli tví- og þrívíðs verks. Táknrænt er vasinn opið form.  Vasinn er grunnform sem táknar hvernig við búum til merkingu með samskiptum okkar við hluti og form. Það er skip, form sem endurspeglar kvenlíkamann og krefst þess að mannleg samskipti hafi merkingu. 

About the work:

The piece Vasar, especially created for Multis, is a computer drawing of Vases , printed on plexiglass taken from the inside of a computer screen. The texture of the plexiglass and shape give the vase a feeling of being somewhere between 2 and 3 dimensional. Symbolically and literally, the vase is an open form. It may be the most fundamental symbol that represents how we create meaning through our interactions with objects and form. It is a vessel, a form that echos the female body, and that requires human interaction to have meaning.
