Lewis & Taggart

Lewis taggart triangles 3

Composition for three and more triangles

Working with material gathered over several years from many places, the Bergen-based artist duo Lewis & Taggart look to the structure and nuance of small objects and printed ephemera as points of departure in the creation of new forms and compositions. For the period of June 2016 to June 2017, they will exhibit a new series of works at Kunstnerforbundet, composed specifically for presentation within the triangular glass cabinet at the gallery’s main entrance.

Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis are Canadian visual artists who have worked within the collaborative framework of Lewis & Taggart since 2006. In 2010, they received a joint MFA from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design, and their work has since been exhibited at venues such as Tegnerforbundet, Oslo; Entrée, Bergen; Syntax, Lisbon; ISCP, New York City; Cricoteka, Krakow; The Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw; and Kunstverein Leipzig. Lewis & Taggart are the recipients of the 2015/2016 Canada Council for the Arts Künstlerhaus Bethanien International Artist Residency award in Berlin, Germany.
