Artist Katrín Inga Jónsdóttir Hjördísardóttir works with various methods and mediums including writing, painting, performance, sound, drawing, and sculpture. She is unafraid to explore clishés, curving out a space of feminine ästhetics in our patriarchal society. She addresses love and sexuality in a therapeutic manner believing art and love can play an instrumental role in savaging the socio-/ political emergency the world is facing today. "Katrín Inga has built up a remarkable resume of exhibitions and performance projects, working in several countries. While often focusing on women and gender issues, she presents a wider critical discussion that involves art history and theory. Her exhibitions and performances are at once serious and wryly humorous. She has a way of presenting complicated ideas in such a way people leave her shows with their head full of thoughts but a smile on their face." (Jón Proppé, Art Historian 2018)
