TIME AND PLACE:
@ Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, 14 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW
Supra Terram is a large and ambitious cavernous structure that extends through the ceiling of the ground-floor gallery into the one above.
The ceiling/floor between the foundation’s lower and upper galleries seems to slice horizontally through the sculpture.
Although influenced by the artist’s fascination with folly architecture, the work itself is inspired by Sigurðardóttir’s interest in the dichotomies of perception present in nearly all matters of life. Such binaries have been at the core of most of her works, from Boiserie, 2010–2011, an installation she created for an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, to Foundation, 2013, which she built for the Icelandic pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
