In the exhibition Athugið, athugið Ásgeir shows woven textile works where he uses a three-axis method to create an isometric pattern that creates three-dimensionality on two-dimensional surfaces. The pattern repeats itself throughout the frame, creating an illusion. The other works in the exhibition are wall sculptures made of tape that he rolls in countless circles.
The works are characterized by an obsessive repetition where Ásgeir seeks to capture the viewer’s attention. The title of the exhibition refers precisely to this need to capture attention, whether it is for a moment or for a long time. At first glance, the works do not show much, but when you get closer you sink into the canvas.
Ásgeir Skúlason b. 1984 lives and works in Reykjavík. He completed his undergraduate studies at the Reykjavík School of Visual Arts before starting his studies at the Iceland Academy of the Arts and graduated from there in 2013 with a BA degree in Fine Arts.
