Karlotta J. Blöndal

Karlotta Blöndal works in a variety of media, ranging from drawings, paintings, publications, environmental installations and performances. By emphasising aesthetics Blöndal investigates the dynamics of a given medium, site or situation, including the manipulation based on our assumptions of what it means to us. Her work sometime deal with found documents and the question of how they can be presented and re-presented. Thus the question of value of the art object, the repetetive aspect vs. uniqueness is present throughout her practice.

Karlotta Blöndal received her BA from Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and her MFA from Malmö Art Academy in Sweden. She has been involved in numerous artist run initiatives, such as the Living Art Museum and Signal gallery Malmö and was co-editor and publisher of Sjonauki Art magazine. She is part of a long term interdiciplinary collaboration project called the Journey to the Magic Mountain, 2013-2020.
