Margrét H. Blöndal: Liðamót / Ode to Join: National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland

28 May - 2 October 2022 

The exhibition Liðamót / Ode to Join by Margrét Blöndal 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 to the space. The Icelandic title "Liðamót" is a reference to the fact that where three or more joints come together, movement results. 


In Blöndal'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. Blöndal‘s works transcend words, and are imbued with beauty and a supernatural attraction, as well as a relationship to symphonic poems.
