Within their practice, Bergen-based artists Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis look to the disciplines of furniture-making and fiction to locate nuanced and unexpected positions for sculpture to occupy. For their talk within IUA’s guest lecture series, Lewis and Taggart will present their work, process, and thoughts on the intersections of sculpture with functional and literary forms.
Andrew Taggart and Chloe Lewis are Canadian, Norway-based artists who work within the collaborative frameworks of Lewis & Taggart, an artist duo established in 2006, and the Museum of Longing and Failure (MOLAF), and experimental platform initiated in 2010.
Their work has been exhibited at venues such as Bærum Kunsthall (Oslo), Fonderie Darling (Montreal), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Looiersgracht 60 (Amsterdam), The Rooms (Newfoundland), Entrée (Bergen), Kunstnerforbundet (Oslo), ISCP (New York), Centre Clark (Montreal), Cricoteka (Krakow), The Centre for Contemporary Art (Warsaw), and Kunstverein Leipzig (Leipzig). In 2010, they received a unique, joint MA in Fine Art from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design (now KMD), Norway, where they have since taught regularly within the Sculpture and Installation focus area.
