Magnús Logi Kristinsson

Born: 1975
Nationality: Icelandic
Based in: Finland
Media: Cross Discipline, Sound / Performance
Content: Conceptual


Born in 1975 in Iceland, Kristinsson has been creating solo performances since 1999 when he moved to Amsterdam to study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, focusing on performative practice and receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2003. From 2005 to 2007 he was performing with the interdisciplinary performance group Oblivia. He received his Masters of Fine Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, where he now lives and works.

Language and the body become structural and sculptural forms in Kristinsson's performance-based practice. Through a systematic manner of speaking his diverse listings become a mix of concrete poetry and music, while his physical presence is put to the test as it borders on the inanimate.
