In the First Place
- A monograph of works dedicated to Icelandic artist Elín Jakobsdóttir
- Fully illustrated and complemented by an interview with the artist
- Text in English and German
As a book, Elín Jakobsdóttir—In the First Place is like a hunt for the sources of artistic creativity: the Icelandic artist’s (*1968) childhood home was buried under the ashes of a volcanic eruption. Themes that touch upon the power and beauty of nature are woven into her works of art. Her translocal references to Iceland, Scotland, and Berlin not only reflect these diverse places, but also make up the depth of her work. Jakobsdóttir’s oeuvre is characterised by a strong lyricism and intensity, with allusions to the subconscious.
