Ragnar Kjartansson by France) Musée d'art et d'essai (Paris( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ragnar Kjartansson's singular work is a cross between performance and cinema, sculpture and opera, plein air painting and music. He often produces large-scale multidisciplinary projects and the production of his works often requires the collaboration of sevaral participants--actors, musicians, friends and family members. Experimenting the mechanisms of theatre and the dramatic impulses of tragedy, Ragnar Kjartansson succeeds in bringing emotions out of melodramatic actions and in revealing the reality on which relies every interpretation. Through repetition, which is genuine motif in his work, Ragnar Kjartansson enlightens the theatricality and efforts at work in everyday life. --
Ragnar Kjartansson : Scheize, Liebe, Sehnsucht by Ragnar Kjartansson( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klischees der westlich-romantischen Künstlerfigur ironisch inszeniert. Ragnar Kjartansson (geb. 1976 in Reykjavík, Island; lebt und arbeitet in Reykjavík) lässt in seinen Werken Elemente aus Theater, Oper, Literatur, Musik, Film, bildender Kunst, Showbusiness und zeitgenössischer Popkultur verschwimmen. Vor allem in seinen langandauernden Live-Performances setzt sich Kjartansson mit dem Dasein des Künstlers als genuin kreativer Figur, wie die sie Romantik hervorgebracht hat, auseinander. Die Stilmittel der Melancholie, des Weltschmerzes und neobarocker Pathos prägen dabei die Arbeiten des Performancekünstlers, Bildhauers, Malers und Musikers, der bereits 2009 Island auf der 53. Biennale von Venedig vertreten hat. Unter dem Titel Scheize, Liebe, Sehnsucht widmet das Kunstmuseum Stuttgart Kjartansson nun die erste umfassende Einzelausstellung in Deutschland seit 2011 und zeigt Werke zu den wesentlichen Themenkomplexen seines Schaffens, von einer im Jahr 2000 begonnenen Videoserie bis hin zu neuen, erstmals zu sehenden Arbeiten. Die gleichnamige Publikation dokumentiert einen umfassenden Querschnitt seiner künstlerischen Position und umfasst umfangreiche Essays von Elisa Schaar, Carolin Wurzbacher, Anne-Kathrin Segler und Matthias Wagner K. Mit einem Grußwort von Martin Eyjólfsson. Das Vorwort schrieb Ulrike Groos
