Icelandic artist Rúrí (*1951 in Reykjavik) is one of the most important female artists in northern Europe, and well known all over the world - already before she drew international attention with her Archive—Endangered Waters at the 2003 Venice Biennale. Her work deals very much with the fragility of the relationship between mankind and its environment. Water with its concrete significance as natural resource and its metaphorical meaning is very much much in her focus, as it will be in her performance Vocal VI minor (Saturday, March 16, 19.30 Kammerspiele).

For Rúrí, art is a way of giving shape to philosophy, and she poses crucial questions about life in a manner unlike any other artist. She raises questions on the human relation to time, cosmos and environment. Her exhibition Fragile Systems will bring together works from the past with very recent ones.
