Born in Reykjavik in 1976, Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson explores the boundary between reality and fiction. Using musical sounds, lyrics, and gestures, his performances and videos play with our ideas of myth, cultural history, and identity. As Kjartansson says, "In Iceland, there is a 1,000-year history, and no proof that it existed, but there are all these stories--the poetry, the sagas. And my performance works exist mostly as stories."
