HC BERG - Young artist of the year 2007
5.12.2007 - 3.2.2008






How do people see? What are the limits of vision? How are images really formed? Artist Hans-Christian Berg, the Young Artist of the Year (1971, Espoo) examines the issues that deal with perception.

His art challenges customary ways of seeing and viewing, using optical illusion, for example. The interaction of material and light offers surprises and insights: it makes even lifeless objects change. The reflections of the artworks engage viewers.

Berg is a trained sculptor and ceramic and glass artist. He makes use of industrial manufacturing processes and new innovations but also uses traditional techniques such as glassblowing. His carefully finished works are the result of collaboration by many professionals and suppliers. His materials are glass, aluminium, steel and plastics.

This exhibition presents selected works by HC Berg from the 2000s. A different version of the exhibition has been shown at Tampere Art Museum and the Ostrobothnian Museum in Vaasa. This exhibition includes several works that have not been seen previously.

The Young Artist of the Year is an event organised by the Tampere Art Museum and the City of Tampere and its purpose is to present young and talented artists and draw attention to what is happening in new Finnish art. Artist Hans-Christian Berg is the 23rd Young Artist of the Year.
