After graduating in 2016 from the Iceland University of the Arts’ MFA program, I have exhibited in various art institutions in Iceland and abroad, such as the 5th International Biennale for Young Art, Deep Inside, curated by Nadim Samman. I have also been teaching and giving talks; in 2017 I was a teacher’s assistant at the Art Academy of Reunion Island (East coast of Africa), teaching to both BA and MA students.
Since 2018 I have been collaborating with new media artist Raphaël Alexandre. As an artist duo we create stage designs for concerts and art installations.
This year I became a member of the board of Nýlistasafnið / The Living Art Museum, Reykjavík.
