Lene Berg

Festival Exhibition

Next event:

Film director and visual artist with an extensive and personal project.

Lene Berg works as an artist and filmmaker. She studied film at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm and over the past two decades has produced outstanding works that question the way in which images create facts. 

In the Festival Exhibition, she presents an extensive new project titled Fra Far (From Father), which continues her investigation of current socio-political climates through autobiographical material.

Berg was nine years old when her father – the film director and author Arnljot Berg – was arrested in Paris in 1975 and imprisoned for the murder of his wife (the artist's stepmother) Evelyne Zammit. This dramatic childhood experience is the starting point of the project which unfolds in a series of film and audio works, together with scenographic elements, in the main galleries of Bergen Kunsthall.  Confronting harsh autobiographical experiences, the exhibition investigates fundamental questions of guilt, memory, and the collective production of truth.

The Festival Exhibition is Bergen Kunsthall's flagship exhibition, established in 1953. The exhibition is considered the most important solo presentation for a Norwegian artist in their home country.
