Lina Iris Viktor

Dark Testament

25 September, 2020 — 31 January, 2021

Lina Iris Viktor works with a restricted colour palette combining photography, painting, performance and sculpture with ancient gilding techniques.

Viktor creates intricate, densely layered surfaces characterised by her ritualistic use of 24-karat gold leaf. Her extraordinary black and gold works – based on photographs – are infused with complex cultural histories of the global African diaspora, and explore the cultural, historical and material implications and multifaceted notions of ‘blackness’: as colour, value and socio-political consciousness.

— The way in which Viktor explores temporality in her work creates a visual per-spective that feels both reminiscent and brand new. Drawing from old traditions, both culturally and artistically, merged with a futuristic approach lifting con-temporary ideas and issues, we can all relate to her work regardless of our own history and background. We are introduced to hidden messages through beautiful images that attract young and old from all walks of life, says Johan Vikner, exhibitions producer at Fotografiska International.
