Poetry Reading by Icelandic poet Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir

Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir was born in 1987 in Reykjavík, Iceland. She studied fine art at the Iceland University of the Arts and is a practising visual artist as well as a composer, musician, and singer. She co-founded the artist-led gallery Kunstschlager in Reykjavík and is a member of the electro-pop trio aiYa, as well as founder of the experimental poetry festival Suttungur. For her multidisciplinary poetry practice – which spans text, music, performance, visual art and film – Ásta was nominated for the Bernard Heidsieck Literary Prize by the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2021. She has also received the prestigious Ljóðstafur Jóns úr Vör poetry prize, awarded annually in Iceland for a single poem. Ásta’s debut poetry collection, Eilífðarnón, was published in Iceland in 2019 and subsequently published in Swedish, German, and English translations. https://www.versopolis.com/poet/366/asta-fanney-sigurardottir This event is co-sponsored by the BU Center for the Humanities and CITL at CGS
