Gallery N. von Bartha is pleased to announce the forthcoming exhibition entitled Unexpected Elsewhere – Animated Drawings and Works on Paper by Norwegian born artist Eline McGeorge.
The exhibition opening will take place on Tuesday November 18 from 6 to 9pm. The artist will be present. The show is on view until January 10 2004.
Eline McGeorge’s most recent works have mainly consisted of computer-animated drawings. Taking a single still drawing drawn on paper or on the computer as a starting point, short sequences are animated. In her new animations the final sequences are built up by layers of related animated hand drawings that are resembled and animated into collages of parallel sequences. The works are shown on flat-screens assembled and designed by the artist.
The forthcoming exhibition at the gallery will contain three new animated drawings as well as a series of new works on paper. The works on paper document and map the development of the animations and reveal the process of animating a single drawing.
Eline McGeorge studied at Art Academy in Bergen Norway and in 2000 graduated with a Master of Fine Art from Goldsmith’s College in London. Over the past three years her work has been extensively exhibited in International Group Shows including the 2001 Bloomberg New Contemporary Exhibition at the Camden Art Centre as well as at P.S.1 in New York, the International Triennale of Contemporary Art Yokohama, Galeria Thomas Cohn, São Paulo and the 2002 Drawing Biennale at Gallery F15 in Norway.
The exhibition is supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy and Office for Contemporary Art Norway.
