Ragnhildur Jóhanns (b.1977) works with language, text and performance and seeks to create poetic objects, collages, drawing or print making to name a few. Jóhanns works books and poetry into most of her work. she is a sculptural, visual and physical poet, unhindered by convention. She works with text, with performance but seeks to create poetic objects, pure concrete poems, that is literally fashioning books out of her work and embodying the text.
Ragnhildur Jóhanns graduated from the Icelandic Art Academy in 2010. She has exhibited in numerous exhibitions in Iceland and internationally. Jóhanns has been involved in various creative projects such as exhibitions, readings and publishing.
