The Art World of the 1960-70’s experienced a healthy transformation in perception with the emergence of Performance and Land Art. These new modes of artistic expression challenged the traditional white cube scenario of what art is and how it should be exhibited. Using our natural environment as its own stage for creative interpretations in whatever form, helped in laying the foundations in how art is perceived in this century.

Persons Projects proudly presents Ragna Róbertsdóttir’s first solo exhibition Configured Landscapes. This collection of works, from the 1980’s to the present, reveals the diversity as well as the tactile sensitivity that Róbertsdóttir has continuously exhibited throughout her illustrious career. Her minimalistic roots reach back to the early 1980’s, beginning with her earliest experimentations with textiles and organic materials that were inherently common within her Icelandic environment. Róbertsdóttir’s approaches her work methodically, leaving each element used, enough space to define its own presence of being.

Thirty years ago, I had the privilege of introducing and curating a minimalistic conceptual exhibition by a group of Icelandic artists in my gallery in Helsinki, Finland. What I didn’t realize then, was how that first show would set a standard for future Finnish generations in how they define their conceptual approach to physics, nature and language. Three decades later, Gallery Taik Persons is proud to announce another collaborative exhibition Cyclic Repetitions, a group show that combines the Icelandic artists Ragna Róbertsdóttir, Kristján Guðmundsson, (both present in the first exhibition), and Finnbogi Pétursson, with their younger Finnish contemporaries, Mikko Rikala, Tanja Koljonen and Rainer Paananen.
