Margrét made a video to the song ‘Douves’ from Bjarni Frímann Bjarnason’s very unique and beautiful album, Chateau, produced by President Bongo. This is Bjarni Frímann’s first solo album and the fourth in the series ‘Les Aventures de President Bongo’. It will be released in May.
The video follows a flower for 11 minutes, struggling to stay alive.
two point five was the outcome of a first time experimental collaboration between Elín Hansdóttir and Margrét Bjarnadóttir. Developed over two months, the artists merged their practices in fine art and dance and developed a spatial strategy to expose the silent character within moments in the gallery space. Corners, doors, edges, or the otherwise mundane, featureless parts of the room begin to reveal a ‘suggestion’ of life.
Fragmented moving shadows and glimmering reflections were interrupted as visitors walked past projected beams of light, creating accidental overlaps between the two-dimensional moving images on the wall and the three-dimensional movement in the gallery space. The title of the piece, two point five, suggests this liminal condition; the perception and experience of the piece can only be known by moving through and around the gallery. two point five discloses an aesthetics of parallax–an aesthetics that is revealed peripatetically within space and between disciplines.
