Egill Sæbjörnsson 22.06.1973-
Born 1973 in Reykjavik, Iceland. Lives in Berlin, DE. Egill Sæbjörnsson graduated from the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts (now the Icelandic Academy of the Arts) in 1997 and studied at the University of Paris, St.Denis, from 1995 to 1996.
Sæbjörnsson is interested in the connection between the mental reality and the physical reality; in the mere connection between what we think and what is happening in the world around us. One can say that, in his work, this is indicated by the projected videos onto objects. The videos can be perceived as the thoughts or the mental reality and the objects as the physical reality or vice versa. We constantly project our thoughts onto the world, just like we record the world through our senses. Humor and perhaps a sense of magic or other elements, such as music, which acquire an openness to interpretation on different levels is somewhat how Sæbjörnsson approaches his work...
