Rósa Gísladóttir exhibits her work in a conversation with the work of Ásmundur Sveinsson. Sculptors from different periods meet in dialogue that offers a new insight into Ásmundur’s heritage and introduces new works by a contemporary artist to the viewers.

In her career, Rósa has worked with various materials but she is best known for plaster sculptures which have taken on different shapes and sizes throughout her career. She often works with artistic references to architecture and cultural history and will utilise Ásmundarsafn, the museum building itself, as a sculpture. Ásmundur built “The Dome Building” at Sigtún in a few stages between 1942 and 1959. It was his home and his studio, and here the studio atmosphere from both Ásmundur and Rósa will meet and become visible.
