Haraldur Jónsson’s work refers back to core ideas of the twentieth-century avant-garde and is expressed in a wide range of materials and forms of presentation. Many of his creations are conceived to transform the viewer’s perception of the works materials. For instance, he has produced sculptures that evoke the experience of silence or absence, drawings that deliberately eschew any representation or coherent composition, installations of industrial materials that defy function, and lists of words that refer to human emotions. He consistently strives to make visible that which is normally hidden and to give form to that which normally has no dimension or form.

Haraldur Jónsson’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows internationally, including the Icelandic Embassy, Brussels, European Kunsthalle, Cologne, ASI Museum, Reykjavik, The National Museum, Reykjavík, Living Art Museum, Reykjavik, Akueyri Art Museum, Akueyri, Icebox Project Space, Philadelphia, and ISE Foundation, New York.
