Opening: 10.12.23, 3pm at IKOB (BE)
In this solo exhibition, Veronika Eberhart presents her film Garten sprengen (Watering the Garden, 2022) together with a new series of sculptural and photographic works based on the biography of the composer Hanns Eisler (1898 – 1962). Coupling an inward gaze with a sprawling investigative outlook is a common strategy employed by Eberhart. An artist and musician born in 1982 in Bad Radkersburg in Austria and based in Vienna, Eberhart studied sociology before finding her path towards the visual arts. Her work unfolds through rigorous research, often interpreting a specific historical reference into complex arrangements encompassing video, sculpture, and installation. While her works are frequently rooted in specific places, their sense of time remains ambiguous.
