Solveig Ylva Dagsdottir


Solveig Ylva Dagsdottir lives and works in Oslo, currently studying at The Academy of Fine Arts.

She searches for the intersection between imagination and reality, using it as a catalyst to approach the hollows of the human mind. In this there lies a curiosity towards the primary attraction towards objects, the energy field existing between the eye and the object, and how we use this energy to create realities and paths within our lives. 

In the process of creating she use colors and form as characters in a drama being played inside a cell, encapsulated inside a situation. A zoomed in drama carrying the pattern of a larger process or condition. Solveig is looking for the intimacy of objects, the desire of materials, the economy of the body, the will of the eyes, the temperament of the creation, the resistance of the instant moment.
