Brynjar Sigurdarson: objects, tales, worlds
Field Essays is happy to announce its protagonist for the upcoming issue!
Brynjar Sigurdarson originates from Iceland; he is interested in accounts of things that happened & in relationships between objects and stories; he is as much as teller as a listener; creating new tales around craftsmanship, legends, and animals, and making new tools that embody them.
“Silent Village Collection”, an animated family of detailed furniture pieces bridging crafstmanship & industry, is currently on show at Galerie kréo in Paris.
