Anna Ehrenstein, Andrew Gilbert
Together with Berlin-based gallery KOW, Sperling presents a joint show of works by Anna Ehrenstein and Andrew Gilbert. Their different artistic positions are linked by a shared concern with questions of hegemonic structures and the interpretational sover- eignty of post/colonial historical narratives.
Anna Ehrenstein uses print, video, installation, and sculpture to address the intersections and divergences of high and popular cultures and their socioeconomic and biopolitical constitutions. Born in Germany with Albanian roots and raised between the two cultures, her focal points are realities and reflections around migration-related visual cultures, diasporic narratives, and virtual imagery.
In his works on paper and large-scale installations, Andrew Gilbert depicts the repetition of history and the impact of 19th-century Imperialism on the present.
