Eygló Harðardóttir


“For Eygló, works are an intuitive approach to the material with no planned or perceived endpoint in sight, rather a means to marking moments on surfaces. She explores edges, structure, potential and discards, and employs the opportunity to shift these things. It is often more than not that the remains of a long conversation with the material becomes the work we view in the end. In that process, and here in the exhibition, we see it stretched out, suspended, adjusted and re-arranged.” […]

“Eygló’s attention is drawn to the energy between things. In that draw there is uncertainty, but there is also most certainly possibility. Her work can be characterized by materiality and process. Like momentary collisions, portable and temporary occasions that bring with them a sense of groundlessness. A feeling of floating between here and there with linear time replaced by a cyclical or growing logic.”
