Artist Talk by Cecilia Enberg
Tuesday, February 21, 6-8pm
NARS is pleased to welcome back residency alumna, Cecilia Enberg, as part of its Entree/Encore public event series.
A talk about patterns, repetitions, and associations, Enberg will present her work, including her 2016 project at NARS, and her most current work at the Carlton Arms Hotel.
Cecilia Enberg is a visual artist living and working in Stockholm, Sweden. She holds a B.Sc in Multimedia and 2014/2015 she took a postgraduate course at the Royal Institute of Art with a printmaking project. SHe is an active member of r a k e t a, an interdisciplinary and collaborative project that experiments within art, design, architecture and digital media.
Interested in the junction between new technology and traditional craftsmanship, Enberg works in various media, such as printmaking, needlework, and photography. Cecilia explores the similarities between recurring everyday events and decorative patterns: “The things we do everyday create patterns in our lives. We seem to have a need to organize and structure our reality, as an attempt to make sense of it. Patterns give us meaning. To understand is to see patterns!”
Entrée/Encore is a series of artists’ talks, discussions, and performances, launched in Fall 2016, which presents our artists and curators-in-residence in dialogue with the cultural community in NY and abroad. Whether it is former residency artists who return to NARS to share how their practice has developed since and new work, or current artists presenting ongoing projects, this initiative provides artists a critical environment to experiment with or contextualize multidisciplinary practices and perspectives within the languages of art and critical socio-political concerns.
