Installations by Margrét H. Blöndal draw their meaning from their location and their internal context. They feature an element of uncertainty, an unknown quantity, which we might call the X-Factor and makes it impossible to predict results or move an exhibition from one location to another. It can also be difficult to precisely define the source of a work’s beauty and attraction, a little like air slipping through your fingers or trying to catch a butterfly. This is surely the reason that Margrét H. Blöndal’s drawings have been compared to reading a book of poetry and her installations with musical compositions, where each unit, each sculpture is like a single note in the whole.

Margrét H. Blöndal (b. 1970) graduated with a BFA from the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts in 1993 and an MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University in 1997. She was granted the prestigious Richard Serra Award in 2002, was nominated for the Icelandic Art Awards in 2006 and was chosen for Manifesta 7.
Through her sculpture, photography, and drawings, Margrét seeks in her art to evoke a geology of the domestic. She encourages her viewers to see in the home the strata of matter and subtle accumulations, attesting not to eruptions or seismic movement, but the sheer everyday business of living.
