Sigurður Guðmundsson's exhibition The Universe is a Poem features a range of different works from the years 1969 - 2021. Guðmundsson's career is multifaceted and the mediums diverse, but a poetic tone has always enwreathed his works; whether works of photography, sculptures, drawings, graphic works or performances, but he has also composed music, written poetry, and published four novels.
The works in the exhibition are poems in and of themselves as the exhibition title suggests but the artist views the universe as a poem and in his dealings with it, he finds it is both good and right to experience the universe as a poem.
Sigurður Guðmundsson is among the most prominent artists of Iceland. He lives and works in Djúpivogur, Reykjavík, Amsterdam and Xiamen in China.
