Margrét H. Blöndal – National Gallery of Iceland

Margrét H. Blöndal, Untitled, 2022, Pigment, watercolor and oil on paper, 35 x 25 cm

Liðamót/Ode to Join is the title of Margrét H. Blöndal’s solo show at the National Gallery of Iceland in Reykjavík. The exhibition comprises on the one hand drawings made with oil and powdered pigments, and on the other three-dimensional pieces to be made directly into the the exhibition venue as a response to the space. The Icelandic title Liðamót is a reference to the fact that where three or more joints come together, movement results. In Margrét’s works, movement arises from partitions to be installed in the space, the placement of the works and the relationship between them. On the other hand, the English part of the title, Ode to Join, is an ode to connections, where each sculpture or drawing becomes one element of a polyphonic music composition.
The exhibition can be seen until 2 October 2022.
