Baldvin Ringsted (b.1974 in Iceland), lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
Often taking the form of sculptural installations, sound pieces, or works on paper, Ringsted’s artworks draw upon his experience as a musician. His practice explores the relationship between the formal properties of this discipline, and its cultural history and development. Moving between image and sound, his pieces often focus on points of transition or translation.
