Transhistoric Coalition welcomes Smári Róbertsson

De Oude Kerk, Museum van Loon, Castrum Peregrini and De Reinwardt Academie make up the coalition “Transhistoriciteit” supported within the framework of 3Package Deal. It wants to stimulate ‘creative producers’ to develop activities that connect and combine historic periods and cultural contexts.

The coalition partners have selected Smári Róbertsson to work with the four institutions From October 2017 to October 2018. Róbertsson will follow up Ronit Porat who was the first artist supported by the coalition. 

Smári Róbertsson (Iceland,1992) is an artist based in Amsterdam. In his poetic works he explores site-specific phenomena and basic architectural elements, which are translated through his practice into written pieces, musical compositions and site-specific installations. The focus of his work often lies on the inherit need we feel to autobiographize our life experiences in order to account for our existence and surrounding. Through his works we encounter objects, who’s history not only shaped them, but who owe their autonomy and existence to the incidental processes which happen in the backdrop of our own lives.

Róbertsson holds a BFA from Gerrit Rietveld Academie (2015) and an MA from the Sandberg Institute (2017) in Amsterdam.
