Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir
12.02 – 24.03 2021
In the exhibition Óreiðukenningin, Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir reflects on systems and patterns and how the world is increasingly governed by systems, algorithms and codes. The visibility of these systems varies, so it is not always clear what controls what, what is the cause and what is the consequence. The title of the exhibition Óreiðukenningin refers to a theory within mathematics about systems that seem to behave randomly but are in fact governed by underlying patterns and certain laws. The exhibition includes woven paintings, drawings and watercolors.
