Siri Berg is a 97-year-old artist born in Stockholm, Sweden now based in New York. Since the 1960’s painter and multi-media artist Siri Berg has worked with a geometric abstraction, one both strictly reduced and rich in variation and the visually unexpected. The exhibition provides an exclusive access to a selection of Berg’s vintage and new paintings, offering a different investigative look at the varied interests and aesthetic experimentations of Berg’s career.
Sara Jegeman is a Swedish independent filmmaker and the founder and owner of film production company Jegenauer Productions. In this documentary Sara Jegeman meets abstractionist artist Siri Berg, a master at colors and gradations. Join Siri Berg and her apprentice, the curator and collector and learn about a spectacular journey of mind and of art creation where the possibilities and interpretations are endless.
