Dagrún Aðalsteinsdóttir (b. 1989 in Iceland) is an artist and an independent curator based in Berlin. Her position as a curator comes from the desire to have a sense of agency as an artist, creating platforms and dialogues that feed back into her own art practice. Dagrún works in various mediums from performances, texts and videos to collage drawings. Her work is an attempt to use personal or fictional scenarious and narratives to be in dialogue with how personal value versus collective value can overlap within the context of a cultural production. The work explores the anti-spectacular and awkward positions of personhood- in order to study what happens in the psychosis when our ideas of ideological and economical value fail.
Dagrún graduated in the year 2016 with M.A degree in Fine Art from LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore, a partner institute with Goldsmiths University in London. Dagrún works in collaboration with artists in Europe, Africa and Asia, organizing and curating projects in collaboration with contemporary art institutions as well as artist run spaces.
