Hreinn Fridfinnsson – Use of Packaging as Sculpture

Fridfinnsson-correspondence

Icelandic artist Hreinn Fridfinnsson is known for his conceptual works. He works across a variety of media from text, photography, sound and ready mades.  He does however seem to use commonplace objects and this is where I have interest.  Interest in how another artist uses a similar object to speak about an idea they have or are working through.  I really like the works with envelopes and cardboard boxes, two objects/materials that I have used in my practice.  I especially love the simplicity of the envelopes used above, stark colour and graphical composition make these read as more than a humble envelope.  There is more work available here.
