Composer
Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir (b. 1993 in Reykjavík, Iceland) graduated from the Iceland University of the Arts’ fine art department in 2019. During her studies, she went on exchange to the Kunst und Vermittlung department at Hochschule Luzern, where her work Konzert für Spielzeug und Schwimmbad was chosen by curator Michael Sutter to be exhibited at the school’s best-of exhibition, K+. Hildur Elísa holds a diploma in classical clarinet from the Reykjavík College of Music and has performed widely with the Hamrahlid choir. In her works, she uses institutional critique within performance, moving image, installation and music, to interrupt and criticise normative narrative and show her subjects from a new angle.
