Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir

Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir hlaut MFA frá Sandberg Institute í Amsterdam, Hollandi árið 2006 og BFA Listaháskóla Íslands árið 2002. Hún býr og starfar við myndlist í Reykjavík og Berlín.

Gunnhildur vinnur með innsetningar, lifandi flutning og teikningar. Verk hennar eiga ávalt rætur í myndlist og ganga út frá myndrænni hugsun, en ganga einnig þvert á listgreinar. Gunnhildur nýtir gjarnan teikningar sem verkfæri til að kanna samspil hljóðheims og hreyfimynsturs í verkum sínum. Teikningarnar verða að lausofinni þýðingu á atburðum yfir í hljóð, og umbreytast lengra, yfir í innsetningar og gjörninga.

Auk þess að hafa átt samstarf með rithöfundum, tónskáldum og leikurum og kórum hefur Gunnhildur einnig unnið með vísindamönnum. Atferlisfræðingum í verkum sem snúa að spurningum hennar um mörk mennsku; Rottukór (2020) og Mennskuróf (2019). Hún vinnur gjarnan með veður- og jarðfræðingum í verkum eins og Óróaplott og Tremor Graphs frá 2018-19, verkum sem snúa að spurningum um hreyfingu jarðar og ímyndaðri sögn sem þar er að finna, sem og samlífi manna, dýra og jarðvera.

Verk hennar er að finna í safneignum Listasafns Íslands og Nýlistasafninu í Reykjavík. Í Uppsala Konstmuseum, Goethe Institute í Kaupmannahöfn og Hess Gallery, í Kanada.
Verk hennar hafa verið flutt og tekin til sýninga víða á ferli hennar. Hún tók m.a. þátt í Silver Lining, Collateral Event á 56tta Feneyjartvíæringinum árið 2015. Hún hefur sýnt í Listasafni Íslands, Listasafni Reykjavíkur, Galleria Municipal do Porto í Portúgal, í Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Uppsala Konstmuseum og í 21 Haus hjá Belvedere Museum í Vín.

Gunnhildur Hauksdottir received her MFA from the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2006 and her BFA from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2002.

Her practice includes drawing, audio, text, installations, and performance. For the past years Her drawings have taken a trajectory towards exploring the sonic realm and movement patterns. Part of her drawings function as intermediary translations from an event to sound, and further to installations and performances. For this purpose, she works with vocalists and choirs whom she trains to read her drawings as score, but also dancers, and most recently classical instrumentalists.

Her works are found in public collections including the National Gallery of Art in Iceland, Uppsala Art Museum in Sweden, the Goethe Institute in Copenhagen, the Hess Gallery Collection in Lethbridge, Canada and the Living Art Museum collection in Reykjavik.

Her works and performances have been exhibited and performed widely throughout her career, she took part in the Silver Lining, Collateral Event at the 56th International Art Exhibition at the Biennale di Venezia in 2015. Among the institutions that have displayed her works are the Galeria Municipal do Porto, the National Gallery of Iceland, the Reykjavik Art Museum, the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, the Uppsala Art Museum and the 21 Haus at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna.
