Artist Grár   


Grár is a sensation. She hails from the short but vast summers of the desolate north. As she strides through the tundra, through mud and thawing permafrost, her energy is spurred by the spirit of exploration. She is the macro lens that examines the structure of colourful lichen, dewy moss, and bone-dry seaweed. She listens to stories – such as those of people with HIV and AIDS and activists of feminist health care movement in the 1980s – and writes them down. Since her degree in textile design, she has been in pursuit of organisms that seem not to belong in any single category – is that a polypore or a horror film? and she gives them an image. Humans, animals, and space: Grár gives sessions and lives in a shamanistic and urban tradition.
