Artists in this exhibition: KIRSTEN EVERBERG


KIRSTEN EVERBERG
15 November - 23 December 2008
Reception 15 November 2008
6.00 - 8.00pm


1301PE is pleased to present a new exhibition by Kirsten Everberg. In Everberg’s 3rd solo exhibition at the gallery, she interrogates the nature of perception: visual, emotional, psychological. Everberg's work asks what do we really know of a landscape or a place, and consequently what do we know of ourselves in relation to the world. Based on Andrei Tarkovsky’s masterpiece My Name is Ivan (1962), Everberg plays with our perceptions of reality in such a way as to ultimately refute their meaning. The paintings are not only beautiful and reflective, but are above all non realist. Despite the apparent serenity and reality of the present work, the viewer becomes lost in the painterly time and space of the work and is caught questioning the truthfulness of the representation of nature.

Everberg employs a series gestures in which elements of realism mix with relative abstraction. These paintings do not stress the permanence of place, rather the endless possibilities of space. Through the handling of paint and the proximity between abstraction and figuration, Everberg creates a distance between issues of perception and conception. What results from this depiction are questions regarding the perception of reality through an alternate reality. She has experimented, meshed, and challenged the perceptions of varied approaches, expressing a sense of shifting temporality and our collective struggle with memory and sense of place.

Since 2003 each exhibition has brought a new aspect of the work to life, as seen in Russell Ferguson’s Undiscovered Country at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles in 2004 and in Everberg’s first major museum exhibition at Le Consortium, Dijon in 2005.
Ferguson says, “Everberg’s thick enamel paint simultaneously seduces and repels the viewer as it seals the image of the place. The shiny paint echoes the glittering surfaces. It fixes and preserves them, as if in amber, yet at the same time its fluidity suggests that the whole scene could be at the point of melting away forever.”

Kirsten Everberg has exhibited nationally and internationally with a major exhibition at Le Consortium, Dijon, France. She has been included in exhibitions in several prestigious institutions including the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver BC, Canada; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Musee Des Beaux-Arts, Nancy, France.
