The multidisciplinary Icelandic artist Rúrí (born 1951) is one of Scandinavia’s first performance artists, and an early practitioner of multimedia installation in northern Europe. Influenced by Fluxus and Conceptual art, her work has maintained a strong political flavor, particularly regarding gender and cultural identity. This is the first comprehensive monograph on her work.
