Sigurdur Gudmundsson once said: ‘I feel most at home in a country where I don’t speak the language, because then I have to use other senses to understand what the other means or says. I have to use sign language to make me understandable.’ Maybe this attitude has helped him to come to this renowned work ‘Event’ he made in 1975 as one of the first works in his photo series “Situations”.

Sigurdur Gudmundsson heeft ooit eens gezegd: “Ik voel mij het meeste thuis in een land waarvan ik de taal niet spreek, want dan moet ik andere zintuigen gebruiken om te begrijpen wat de ander bedoelt of zegt. Ik moet gebarentaal toepassen om mij begrijpbaar te maken.” Misschien heeft deze houding hem geholpen om het vermaarde werk ‘Event’ in 1975 te maken dat het begin werd van zijn reeks unieke fotowerken ‘Situaties’.

De Irakoorlog was een door de Verenigde Staten en het Verenigd Koninkrijk in maart 2003 ingezette oorlog tegen en in Irak, waarbij ook andere landen binnen het Navo-bondgenootschap troepen leverden.

In 2003 The Netherlands was one of the Western countries that joined the Allied Forces called the “Coalition of the Willing” to fight against the regime of Saddam Hussein. This urged Sigurdur Gudmundsson to make a series of enamel plaques commenting the countries involved and who caused the killing of the dictator and fall of the regime.

Next to being a visual artist Sigurdur Gudmundsson writes novels since 1993. Insiders in Iceland call the content of his books innovative and a remarkable addition to the Icelandic literature.

In 2016 his fourth book will be published, at a certain point also in English his new publisher Crymogea states.
