In intimate relationships, we often blame one another for our painful feelings - and often end up abandoning ourselves. Not knowing how to lovingly resolve conflict, and closing ourselves to learning from each other can lead to constant disagreement and the undermining of one another’s higher good. In her first Miami exhibition, The And, Lilja explores this behavior and what can often seem like a never-ending back and forth.
Lilja Birgisdottir (b.1983) studied photography at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, Netherlands and received a BFA from the Iceland Academy of the Arts, Reykjavík, Iceland. Since then she has been an active member of Kling & Bang, an artist run gallery in Reykjavík. In 2011 she founded Endemi, a publication focused on Icelandic contemporary art.
Lilja works in various mediums including photography, performance, video art, sound, and installation. She is currently working on exhibitions in Reykjavík, New York, Miami, Tallinn and Helsinki.
