B. Ingrid Olson implements elements of photography, sculpture, and performance in an ongoing exploration of the boundaries between body and space. Within the confines of her studio, she records her body as it moves — shifting in relationship to its surroundings. The results of this process are multidimensional objects and images that re-imagine the capacities of the body and the structuring of space.

Arna Óttarsdóttir’s practice explores the traditional methods of the loom, creating elaborate tapestries. The visual source derives from her sketchbooks, where she does not select the final motif based on refined finish, but rather on the possibility of future exploration.

Since the late 1970s, Roni Horn has produced drawings, photography, sculpture and installations, as well as works involving words and writing. Horn’s work, which has an emotional and psychological dimension, can be seen an engagement with post-minimalist forms as containers for affective perception.

Margrét H. Blöndal 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.
