Magazine on visual arts in Iceland
Ásdís started making performances through skype in 2007 where she had a new performance every Sunday afternoon by the computer. The audience would call in that hour for a performance.
Since then she has on and off used the online medium for performance and video making, where improvising plays a big part of the art. In 2011 she made a large video installation called „Improvised, immediate past“ in the show „Momentum“, she recorded a performance and did not allow herself to edit it, it was a one take and projected onto the walls, live size from 3 different angles. This way she wanted to release her control over the video medium and celebrate the „Power of now“, the beauty in the details.
Ásdís is a part of an artist group that is called „Theater of Artists“ that makes glamorous evenings of performances in the basement of The National Theater in Iceland.
In the fall of 2011 Ásdís along with Ragnar Kjartansson and Davíð Þór Jónsson lead a residency in Banff called „The Soiree Retreat“ where artists got together every week and made an evening of Soirees, full of poetry, videos and singing.
