Baldur Björnsson

To attain the truth you must spout lies, to clear the waters you must muddy them.

Baldur Björnsson, Iceland (1976) works at understanding the world by ingesting it, analyzing it, via symbols, aesthetics and the lens of history, then casting it forth again to re-enter the physical world in the form of art. He believes that by mixing different techniques and disciplines, fact and fiction, reality and unreality there may be a chance of gaining true insights into the nature of the world and humanity’s place within it. And that by confusing and complexifying things, they may in the end become clearer than before.
