featuring visual artists Ingrid W. Berven and Lillian Presthus. Presthus is
primarily known for her paintings of domestic scenarios and family life. Ingrid Berven is one of Norway’s most respected
multimedia artists with a strong social and political voice. This exhibition is the first in a series of collaboration projects
between the two artists scheduled throughout the next two years.
C YA! – short for see you – is not only a parting comment, but also acknowledgement that somebody has noticed another
person. In turn, it may also represent an outside observer looking at the world, but not sharing in it. Berven/Presthus
allow us to share in what they have observed, leaving us to analyze, consider, accept or reject their observations.
