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.
