The solo exhibition pollur – spegill by Margrét H. Blöndal, is ongoing from Oct 7 – Nov 26 in the Skaftfell Art Center.
The exhibition consists of six works that all were made a few days prior to the opening. The artist’s work process begun with examining the gallery, its shape and atmosphere, followed by a process of arranging and placing around the space, detailed objects made out of everyday material, wire, plastic, thread, stick etc. These materials were transformed and animated into curious objects that contain a familiar presence and together weave a poetic and fine tuned installation.
In her travells Margrét is alert and, at the same time, subconsciously ready to collect materials to process and animate into new objects. She brought with her to Seyðisfjörður a selection of her global stock as well as gathering new material in the fjord when visiting local homes, storages and storehouses.
