歐陸作為現當代藝術文化的啟蒙發源之地,多數大眾對於該地藝術家與歷史發展並不陌生。然而,在這乘載豐富人文重量的大陸北方,北歐地區的當代藝術依此延伸出截然不同的風貌,冰島藝術家索迪絲・阿德丹斯多堤即是冰島當代藝術圈中極為重要的藝術家。

 

Compared with Northern Europe, people are more familiar with the history of modern and contemporary art in Europe. Based on this situation, Icelandic artists still build its own unique style and Thordis Adalsteinsdottir is one of most important contemporary artist with no doubt.

索迪絲的作品讓人聯想到冰島的寒冷空氣和寬闊地理,常只見一人與動物,各個眼神怪奇、關節扭曲、肢體誇張。評論者說她的人物姿態如同奧地利藝術家埃貢・席勒(Egon Schiele),飽富生命必然的憂傷跟必須的倔強,存於看似隨時要崩塌的寧靜空間中。這是來自索迪絲欲破壞觀眾對空間結實印象的意圖,並將具象的敘事超現實化,體現角色更深層的內心時空。

 

It is easy to connect Thordis's works with the meteorology and geography in Iceland. The figures in her painting are all have a strange expression in eyes and bodies, so some critic said that Egon Schiele has an influence in her paintings. Thordis makes an attempt to destroy the impression of  formal spatial perception in order to incarnate the inside space-time of human beings.

冰島的視覺藝術歷史不長,首獲國際名聲的冰島藝術家 Ásgrímur Jónsson 描繪冰島的山脈稜角與民間傳說。而現為人所知的藝術家作品如 Olafur Eliasson 的河床、Katrín Sigurdardóttir 的高空、Ragnar Kjartansson 的繪畫等,皆述說著冰島那冷冽蒼茫的山峰、無際遙闊的杉原,冰封百年的川河及寓言啟示般的動物人像,吐納著那令人沈淪的神秘與美麗,恆久紀錄貫穿當地藝術的風景。

 

Iceland has short history in visual art. Artists such as Ásgrímur Jónsson, Olafur Eliasson, Katrín Sigurdardóttir, and Ragnar Kjartansson all depict the nature landscape in Iceland. Boundless mountain peaks, vast forests, and century-exist glaciers...consist the breathtaking view of Icelandic nature and art.
