Opening reception April 9, 2010, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

For his solo exhibition at Dorsch Gallery, Magnus Sigurdarson will be presenting installation-based work. Like Tommerup, whose work will be shown concurrently, Sigurdarson is addressing some of the dominant themes found in Nordic art and culture, in particular, Nordic angst and melancholy.

He has studied at Studio Cecil & Graves in Florence Italy, Icelandic College of Arts & Crafts, and Mason Gross School of Art at Rutgers University. He currently lives and works in Miami. He has exhibited at PanAmerican Art Projects and Kevin Bruk Gallery at Art Basel Miami Beach 2007. His works are in the permanent collections of Iceland Air, The Living Art Museum in Reykjavik, Iceland, the Icelandic National Gallery, and The Focus Group corporate collection in New York, among others.

Sigurdarson's work for this exhibition was produced in association with Yann Quillien.
