Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir is a visual artist living and working in Iceland.

She also holds a BA degree in Art History from the University in Aarhus, Denmark (2002).
In her solo practice, Ingunn works mainly in painting and installation. Her work can be seen as rooted in early abstract painting and minimalism. Formal experiments are made with different materials in space, challenging the viewer’s aesthetic and visual perception and creating a tension between the work, the space and the viewer.
Ingunn Fjóla´s work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums in Iceland, including the National Gallery, Reykjavík Art Museum and Hafnarborg. Ingunn has exhibited internationally among others at the Prague Biennale 5, Check Republic; Cluj Museum, Rumenia and Kunstverein Springhornhof, Germany. Works in public collections include the National Gallery of Iceland.
Parallel to her solo practice Ingunn has also been active in the artist duo Hugsteypan alongside Þórdís Jóhannesdóttir. In their work, Hugsteypan explores the boundaries between scientific research and artistic expression employing different methods and mediums including sculpture, photography, painting and video.
