Margrét H. Blöndal (b. 1970)
Margrét H. Blöndal’s sculptural assemblages are usually composed of found, manmade objects. They are arranged in subtle accumulations and singular moments, incurring and occupying a particular sense of space. Things may be propped, hung or tied; objects commune in conversation.
Blöndal will make a site specific, three dimensional work inspired by the unique position of Turner Contemporary. Blöndal will travel to Margate and take up residency in a nearby studio during the installation period in order to create a major new work in response to the town, its history and the context of the exhibition. Materials and found objects used to create the work will be sourced locally, utilising the rich and varied fabric which makes up the Kent coastline.
