Elín Hansdóttir nominated the choreographer, theatre maker and performer Margrét Bjarnadóttir:
Margrét Bjarnadóttir is a master of words, or more so of the words behind words and meaning behind meaning. She draws forward landscapes within a landscape and movements beyond motion. Her work celebrates the mysteries of life and human idiosyncrasies. It flows - whether performative, photographic or text based, her work is not bound to one particular medium. It explores the fragile potential of uncertainty and strength through discomfort. She peels everyday life like an orange, carefully thrusting the inside outward, then pressing the fruit back together again, as if nothing had happened.
