Hanni Bjartalíð (b. 1968 in Klaksvik, Faroe Islands) is a major innovator in Faroese art. He is probably the only Faroese artist making sustainable work.
Originally a painter, he has been compared to the Italian Arte Povera artists by using found materials close at hand. Although trained as a painter Hanni’s work most often now takes the form of 3d sculptures created from found materials. Just as with his paintings Bjartalíð recycles his sculptural objects often reusing parts from works shown in exhibitions to create new, larger works.
Opening 23.11 at 5 pm
