In her work, Katrin Sigurdardottir examines distance and memory and their embodiments in architecture, urbanism, cartography and traditional landscape representations. Sometimes there is a mnemonic aspect to the work, i.e. making the work is a process of spatial recall. The places created are frequently based on real places, points of departure, arrival or passage, places as minute at their spatial and temporal distance as the models she make of them. While alluding to real locations, her works question the verity of these places, as well as our account of them.
Sigurdardottir ́s work crosses the boundary between perceptual and embodied space. She takes on the uneasy confronta - tion, when the viewer has to negotiate a new relationship with the miniature, see it as not representing other than itself, a disproportionate constructed object in the full-scale world.
