Ívar Glói Gunnarsson Breiðfjörð's (b. 1992) recent works deal with the standardization of
            our surroundings, a lack of Benjaminian aura and the subsequent search for the "authentic"
            in the digital era. 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. He 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.
            He currently lives in Berlin.
