Kirsten Everberg

 

1301PE is proud to present its fourth one-person exhibition with Los Angeles based artist Kirsten Everberg. The exhibition features new work that reflects on the narrative layers of Los Angeles as the site of multiple locations. By shift of focus and reframing, and adjustments of light, Everberg suggests that a space can simultaneously represent multiple geographic and temporal locations.

Everberg highlights the subjectivity of memory and the unreliability and relativity of truth as we experience it in the city. The context of a place changes as it is presented and re-presented, borrowing on cultural capital that reflects its many narratives. Our experience and memory of that same space remains a deceptive afterimage, further contributing to the mythology of the city.

Kirsten Everberg lives and works in Los Angeles. Upcoming in 2011 is Everberg's first major one-person exhibition in a United States museum. The exhibition opens at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ in October and will be accompanied by a catalogue. A major publication on Kirsten Everberg is due to be released by Les presses du réel during 2011. She has been included in exhibitions in several international and United States institutions including Le Consortium, Dijon, France; Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver BC, Canada; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; and Musée des beaux-arts, Nancy, France.
