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.
