Could it have been something else ?
It can be anything
Do I love everything ?
Unfortunately not, but all things can be loved by different people at different times: enemies, devils, gods and chocolate candies.

Icelandic conceptual art is known for its polished and pure forms, its clear and simple thought, and its refined, subdued elegance. But not Sigurdur Gudmundsson!

Then they post a couple of photos of Sigurdur Gudnumndsson's artworks and all are polished and pure forms, clear and simple thought, refined, subdued elegance epitomized.

You're doing this all wrong Sigurdur.

Renoroc: I bet the poem sounds better in Icelandic

As beshtya said, that's just pretty much the way SigurĂ°ur speaks. His writing is quite good, though principally he's a visual artist. He's written a number of well-respected novels and poems in Icelandic and gets nominated for literary awards regularly.

Here are some more artworks by SigurĂ°ur. I really appreciate the humor in his art.
