Hulda Ros Gudnadottir is a contemporary visual artist and a filmmaker born in Reykjavík, Iceland but based in Berlin, Germany. She works predominately on long-term projects; creative documentaries, large mixed-media installations and interdisciplinary collaborative projects in addition to smaller works such as single-channel videos, performance, intervention, sculptures and digital photography. The subject of her works touches upon socio-economic issues from a personal perspective and comes to life through a practice and public exhibition based process that she defines as research.
Gudnadóttir holds an MA degree in interactive design from Middlesex University (2001) and BA in visual art from Iceland Academy of the Arts (2007) and BA in cultural anthropology from the University of Iceland (1997). She has staged solo exhibitions in museums such as Berlinische Galerie - Museum of Modern Art - in Berlin, Reykjavik Art Museum and ASI Art Museum in Reykjavik, Iceland but also in 'Kunsthalle' projects that included Kunstkraftwerk Leipzig under the leadership of Candace Goodrich (2016) and renowned project spaces such as Program in Berlin (2010) curated by Carson Chan and Fotini Lazaridou-Hatzigoga. She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions and screenings at galleries, project spaces and film festivals in countries such as USA, Mexico, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, UK, France, Poland, Serbia, Greece, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Japan and Hong Kong. In November this year, a retrospective exhibition of the Keep Frozen research project and artistic outcomes will be shown in the 5000 m2 space in Verksmidjan 'kunsthalle', Hjalteyri, Iceland. Her next solo exhibition after that will be at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin where she currently holds the invitation of artist-in-residence for one year.
