Hildigunnur is an everyday mystic, deeply in love with the small and the insignificant. The flying debris in the win of capitalist culture. Things made by man dor man with side stepped meaning and urgency. Her passion is to unlock the mystery of life.  

Her odes to the insignificant objects of our consumer-driven culture pose poetic statements about the nature of art and the meaningulness of everything. She deals with consumer culture in the opposite way to Jeff Koons: she draws our attention to the packaging your smoke detector comes in. Hildigunnur makes us notice the real things that we would otherwise miss, things that are – it turns out – made with intent, attention to detail, and even care, but that are deemed insignificant und uninteresting because of their nature or functionality. – excerpt by Ragnar Kjartansson.
