You Are My Loving Insane
Egill Sæbjörnsson

A music video based on a story invented from a record cover. On the cover there was a drawing of three objects: a small, hairy creature with two eyes, a white deer, and a ghettoblaster. There was no reason for putting those three objects together. Nonetheless Egill used these images as a point of departure for the video.

About the artist

Egill Sæbjörnsson (born 1973) graduated from the Icelandic College of Arts and Crafts (now the Icelandic Academy of the Arts) in 1997 and studied at the University of Paris, St.Denis, from 1995 to 1996. Since 1999 he shares his time between Reykjavík and Berlin. His art is an unusual fusion of music, sound, video and installations in addition to which he often appears himself as part of his exhibition projects.

From the start of his career he has handled different media and expressive idioms with remarkable facility. He harnessed computers, projections and musical instruments in his performances where he himself took on a different persona in each new context. He has a whole career in music and has released his music with record companies and music is an integral part of his many performance projects.
