LEWIS & TAGGART
BLACK HOLES AND OTHER PAINTED OBJECTS
Entrée, April 24 - May 24
For the final exhibition at Nøstegaten 42, Entrée presents a new body of work by the Bergen-based artist duo Lewis & Taggart.
Working with material gathered over several years from many places, Lewis & Taggart look to the structure and nuance of found objects and ephemera as points of departure in the creation of new forms and compositions. Of particular interest are objects that share specific qualities; those that are small enough to pass through their hands on a daily basis, those that circulate on the periphery of a centralized economy, and those embedded with both formal and contextual resonance.
Since 2008, their sculptural practice has been punctuated by a series entitled Black Holes; an ever-growing image bank of black-and-white photographs united by the repeated presence of two identical, black, wooden, circular planes. For Black Holes and other painted objects, their second exhibition with Entrée, Lewis & Taggart bring together new sculptures with a selection of collages derived from their Black Holes archive. As a concluding event, the artists will perform Music for Black Holes, a time-based work in two parts, at Landmark, Bergen Kunsthall, on the evening of Sunday, May 24th.
Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis have worked within the collaborative framework of Lewis & Taggart since 2006. They received a joint MFA from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design in 2010, and their work has since been exhibited at Syntax, Lisbon (PT), Entrée Satellite, ISCP, New York City (US), RAKE Visningsrom, Trondheim (NO), Grünerløkka Kunsthall, Oslo (NO), Kunstverein Leipzig (DE), Volt, Bergen (NO), NoPlace, Oslo (NO), Tag Team, Bergen (NO), Cricoteka, Krakow (PL), the Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw (PL), Rogaland Contemporary Art Centre, Stavanger (NO), and The Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art, Vaasa (FI), among other venues.
