Some things . . .

Solo show
Iselp, Bruxelles (BE)

Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir


The art center ISELP is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Icelandic artist Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir. She unveils works produced in silence, restraint and economy of means. A stage in a frantic race: here, everything is set in order to measure time and watch a visual art unfold that unites the formal and the informal, technicality and finesse.

Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir develops a world on the borders of the living and the sensitive, or the real and the fantasised, in a series of works made largely from cut, scraped, sewn, glued or assembled paper. Drifting between abstraction and figuration, her universe is made up of micro and macroscopic details that evoke organisms in the making, fictional constellations and even strange worlds.

The exhibition some things… presents some things that come from this unique world. A subtle world in which the thinking body is subject to internal emotions and external stimuli, it is this duality which constitutes our humanity just as much as the need for alterity.



Where? ISELP, 31 Boulevard de Waterloo, 1000 Bruxelles
When ? 24.01.20 – 21.03.20
Open Tuesday to Saturday, 11am – 6pm

“…come from within”: Belgian composer, conductor and cellist Jean-Paul Dessy will perform a concert in dialogue with Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir’s works on Friday 14.02.20 at 6.30pm


In the context of this exhibition, ISELP has coedited an eponymous publication with CFC-editions. It offers another form of incursion into the artist’s work: in its printed form, some things… is an artist’s book that arranges works and details of works, exhibition viewings, fragments of workshops and texts. Among these, one is of the art critic, Filip Luyckx, and the other that of the curator of the exhibition, Catherine Henkinet. These texts help to illuminate the work of Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir.
