Helgi Thorsson

In conversation with
Ola Vasiljeva

As part of the exhibition: Bellissimo Thorsson
This took place before the opening on 02/26/2016

The artists invited to realize a project at 1646 are asked to engage in conversation with a correspondent via email or DM, be it someone previously unknown to them or whom they’re already familiar with.

This conversation spans the period before an exhibition is completed. 1646 invites the correspondent at the other end of this exchange to ask questions so they may be guided through the artist’s decision-making process and how their initial ideas develop toward completion. It provides insight into the artist’s body of work and is intended to paint a picture of the otherwise untraceable choices that constitute the artist’s practice.

He studied Sonology at The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, received his BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2002 and an MFA from the Sandberg Institute in 2004.

As well as having handled his brush and chisel for the past decades, Thórsson is a member of the bands Stilluppsteypa and Evil Madness.
