Ólöf Nordal: Úngl

Mid-career retrospective of Ólöf Nordal's work.

Ólöf Nordal (b. 1961) often references Icelandic folktales, national heritage and cultural motifs which she places in a modern context. She is also preoccupied with nature and our connection to the land.

Ólöf studied textile art at The Icelandic College of Art and Crafts, and later in Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. In 1993, she graduated from the sculpture department of Yale University.

In her work she attempts to explore and examine the structural material of mythical tales, she looks for things that fall outside the traditional framework and thus become a source of museums and religion. Ólöf‘s work often cast a new light on the events of the present, as well as referencing both the past and the future.

The exhibition is a part of the museum's aim to research and present the works of significant local artists and it is followed by an extensive catalogue and programme.
