Through this series of works on paper and resin coated wood pieces, Bert Bergen portrays the tension between the human body and the universe that lies beyond our world. His fascination with “The Journey to the Sky, Heavens, or Aether”, a theme common in many mythologies and shamanic disciplines, is woven into a metaphysical horror that is truly his own.

Abyss of Fathomless Light, Bert Bergen’s solo sound performance project, will perform the night of the opening. A live sound collage of processed cassette tape-loops, vocals and electronics will provide the atmosphere for a ritualistic performance that carries over the theme of a dark and rapturous otherness.
