December 2010: Katrín Sigurdardóttir at the MET

October 19, 2010 – May 30, 2011

"Katrín Sigurdardóttir at the Met is an exhibition of two new sculptural installations created specifically for the Metropolitan by Sigurdardóttir, an Icelandic artist (born in 1967), who lives and works in New York City and Reykjavik. Sigurdardóttir is known for her highly detailed renditions of places, both real and fictional, that often incorporate an element of surprise.

Entitled Boiseries, the installations are full-scale interpretations of 18th-century French rooms preserved at the Metropolitan Museum, one from the Hôtel de Crillon (1777-80) on the Place de la Concorde, Paris, and the other from the Hôtel de Cabris (ca. 1774) at Grasse in Provence."
