until 02.12. | #4083ARTatBerlin | WENTRUP shows from 27. October 2023 the exhibition Saga by the artist Sally Kindberg.
Step into the mesmerizing world, where the canvas becomes an enigmatic tapestry of interconnected tales and unexpected discoveries. Kindberg seamlessly blends intuition and meticulous exploration to breathe life into fragments of found images, sketches, and snapshots. In “Saga,” the artist invites you to embark on a journey where the mundane transforms into the extraordinary, where hidden stories come to life, and where the canvas becomes a portal to a world of endless possibilities. The exhibition transcends the boundaries of traditional art, inviting the viewers to engage with the paintings, interpret their meanings, and contribute their unique perspective to the unfolding narrative.
Kindberg’s fascination with texture, surface, and tones is palpable in every stroke. The paintings, almost sculpted into their final forms, reveal the artist’s dedication to her craft. Layers of meaning, akin to the layers of paint, ask the viewers to decipher the similarities between their world and the one presented in the exhibition.

Sally Kindberg, born in Sweden (1970) studied at Goldsmiths, University of London. She lives and works in London. Interested in both high and low brow culture, Kindberg plays on the notion of the tragicomic in a society that is both civilised and ridiculous. She uses this humorous approach acting as a portal that enables us to explore other, more unsavoury emotions.
