Lene Berg

Artist

Lene Berg (b.1965 in Oslo, Norway, lives and works in Berlin, Germany and New York, NY, US) studied film at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm. Working as an artist, Berg integrates text, film and photography in her work. She explores relationships between contemporary images and inherited ideas; between facts and clichés; between structures of narration and ideology. Berg is particularly interested in what is not told and what does not fit the general picture or story. She has directed two feature films, En Kvinnas Huvud (1997) and Kopfkino (2012), as well as more than fifteen video-projections and shorter films. Her work has been shown at the Henie Onstad Art Center, Oslo; Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Art in General, New York and Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, USA, among others. She has participated in the Sydney Biennale, Australia; Contour Mechelen, Belgium and Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain.
