At the end of the day
AndrÃ©hn-Schiptjenko has the pleasure of presenting a new solo-exhibition by Maria Lindberg. Lindberg has recently had solo-exhibitions at The Stenersen Museum Oslo (2004, catalogue available), at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco (2003) and a major retrospective at the Gothenburg Kunsthalle in 2002. For this occasion the British publishing house BookWorks published her artist book Trying to get in between.
Lindberg, born 1958, has held a unique position in Scandinavian arts since the early 1990s. With her paintings, drawings, objects and almost invisible performances she directs our attention to the invisible or unseen, the trivial and the absurd, which more often than not contain the incomprehensible. Or not. Her continuous observations make us reconsider what we think we know or what we take for granted.
In the current exhibition, which the artist points out is her 158thâ€¦ she shows work from recent years in diverse, more or less visible media. They spring from her permanently on-going inward and outward observations. The work is charged with meaning, some of it to be found outside of the pieces themselves. Lindberg aims â€“ and succeeds â€“ to express the not yet formulated, her work changes meaning and questions the obvious. Her art makes the viewer dare to doubt that that was never questioned.
The exhibition opens on Thursday April 7, 5-8 pm and runs through May 14. The gallery is open Tuesdays â€“ Fridays 11-5 pm and Saturdays 12 â€“5 pm. For further information and visuals, please contact the gallery at +46 8 612 00 75 or email@example.com
