About

Katrín Sigurðardóttir: Supra Terram, at Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is the Icelandic artist’s first major exhibition in a public London institution. Supra Terram is a large and ambitious grotto-like sculpture that extends through the ceiling of the ground-floor gallery into the one above. The ceiling/floor between the foundation’s lower and upper galleries literally slices horizontally through the sculpture. Although influenced by the artist’s fascination with folly architecture, the work itself is inspired by Sigurðardóttir’s interest in the dichotomies of perception present in nearly all matters of life. From the Latin term for ‘going above ground’, Supra Terram combines the features of a natural subterranean cave and a man-made grotto. This site-specific work is the artist’s response to the two floors of exhibition space at Parasol unit, where visitors must move between the lower and upper galleries to fully discover and mentally unify the two parts of the sculpture. This exhibition curated by Ziba Ardalan, Founder/Director of Parasol unit is accompanied by a limited edition print and publication, and a related programme of events.
