Title: “Chromo Sapiens – Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter”
Curator: Birta Gudjónsdóttir
Commissioner: Eiríkur Þorláksson, Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture
Artist: Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter

Artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir / Shoplifter uses hair, the trademark material of her practice, to create a large-scale cavernous and immersive environment, reproducing organic forms. The installation invites to a return to nature, addressing the increasing need in this sense of contemporary society overwhelmed by artificial matters. A specially commissioned sound work by the Icelandic metal band HAM accompanies the work.
