Egill Sæbjörnsson (IS) - Various Projections

Icelandic artist and musician Egill Sæbjörnsson (°1973) lives and works in Berlin and Rio de Janeiro. From the start of his career he has handled different media and expressive idioms with remarkable facility. He harnessed computers, projections and musical instruments in his performances where he himself took on a different person in each new context. He has a whole career in music and has released his music with record companies and music is an integral part of his many performance projects. In recent video installations or “tableaux vivants” ”, where animation is projected onto objects juxtapose the fictive and the real, language and narration. With references to both art history and contemporary society, he often explores his viewers' perception of our environment and culture, playing on traditions and taboos.
