Ívar Glói's (b. 1992) works deal with the context of the art installation and the idea
            of the unique art object in an age marked by virtual connectedness. Using different media
            to project hints of different places into each exhibition space. The works play with the notion
            of the viewer being somewhere unique, however staged the setting of it may be.
            Ívar Glói has studied at the Iceland Academy of Arts, where he finished his BA in Fine Arts in 2014,
            Hochschule für bildende Künste (HFBK) in Hamburg and Konsthögskolan i Malmö.
            Recent projects include Sound & Proof Soup Bowl w. Leó Gunnarsson, Gallery Port, Reykjavík,
            Round and round; north, east, south, west on repeat at Delfi, Malmö,
            Floating, hanging, cloudy, lit up floor plans & Ikea Snapshots at Bismút, Reykjavík and the release
            of his 7 inch vinyl record 'Into the Groove'.
            He currently lives and works in Reykjavík, Iceland.
