Influenced by William James's The Principles of Psychology (1890), Elí­n Hansdóttir's work is founded on the idea that art is incomplete without human interaction. Perception and interplay are therefore considered necessary components of her work, with the viewer seen as an active participant in the space constructed by the artist—often architectural structures that force an individual to respond. Labeled as "self-contained works," Hansdóttir's installations establish their own set of visual and auditory rules and subject the viewer to unfamiliar environments.

Hansdóttir completed an artist residency in Morocco and participated in the 2012 Marrakech Biennale. She has also received artistic funding and support from Iceland, Germany, Norway, and the United States and received a commission from the Frieze Foundation for the 2007 Frieze Projects. The artist has co-published a book titled PATH that tackles questions of how visual and tactile memory plays a part in reflecting on experience.Read Less
