For CHART Gether Contemporary will present new works by Sif Itona Westerberg, Astrid Myntekær & Asger Dybvad Larsen.

Sif Itona Westerberg (DK)

In the work of Sif Itona Westerberg, motifs originally taken from antiquity or the middle ages are morphed together in predominantly sculptural works that reinterpret a myriad of styles and historical aesthetics through the artist’s own contemporary perspective. Meticulously carving sculptures entirely by hand, Westerberg’s practice harks back to classical techniques but applies them to contemporary industrial materials. The result is an artistic practice that points towards the present and future by looking into the past.

Sif Itona Westerberg (b. 1985) lives and works in Copenhagen. Having received her MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, her works are represented in a number of private and public collections including: The New Carlsberg Foundation and Malmø Kunstmuseum. Westerberg’s exhibition history includes: Tranen (DK), Malmø Kunstmuseum (SE), Oluf Høst Museet (DK), Gianni Manhatten (A), Latvian Centre for Contemporary art (LVA) , Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art (DK), PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art, (RU), Cassandra Cassandra (CND), Museum of Contemporary Art, (RU), The Aros Triennial; The Garden (DK) The Sculpture Triennial: Becoming Human (DK), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK).
