Borders: Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir

Aug 29, 2021 - Apr 23, 2022

The work of Icelandic artist Steinunn Thórarinsdóttir returns to the Dixon this fall with more than twenty sculptures from her Borders series. The Dixon first presented the artist’s Horizons series in our gardens in 2009 to great success. Now, Thorarinsdottir’s remarkable figural works will animate the Dixon’s property again through Borders. The sculptures are presented in pairs, one cast-iron and one aluminum, either standing or seated and often placed as if they are in a silent conversation. Thorarinsdottir’s figures are at once familiar and otherworldly, and their quiet aura invites viewers to contemplate the ways in which all humans are connected, despite our outward differences.
