Sari Maarit Cedergren
Private Exhibition: Umhleypingar
Kaapelin Galleria, Cable Factory, Helsinki, Finland.
3.02 - 26.02 2006
Private view on Friday, 3 February at 5 pm

Umhleypingar means rapid change in weather, which is quite typical for Iceland. This Icelandic noun for a specific weather condition is the best description for the different types of weather displayed in Sari’s exhibition. All of which could occur during one single day.
The Finnish born sculptor Sari M. Cedergren has been working with plaster and concrete to display different aspects of Icelandic weather in the recent years. The viewpoint of Sari’s artwork on weather has evolved from the macroscopic horizon towards the microscopic, the smallest entities of the weather. Sari uses the energy of the weather to propel movement in her artwork, movement in which the weather is reflected trough various mediums.

Sari is originally Finnish, grew up in Sweden and has lived in Iceland since 1986. She attended the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and The Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki and graduated from the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts.
During her career she had solo exhibitions at The Nordic House in Reykjavik, Slunkariki gallery, Isafjördur, Labour Union’s Art Gallery, Reykjavík, and at The Hafnarfjördur Institute of Culture and Fine Art – Hafnarborg. As well as participating in various group exhibitions in Iceland, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland.
