Susanne Gottberg's exhibition 'The Third Factor' opens on June 1, 2019, at Kunsthalle Helsinki.
The exhibition presents recent works by Susanne Gottberg (b. 1964) dating from the 2010s. The imagery in Susanne Gottberg’s paintings comprises quiet, tense moments and situations where something has just departed or will soon occur. In recent years, Gottberg has shifted from depicting nature and sceneries to interiors, examining different elements of furniture, studying fabrics and details of patterns. Gottberg challenges the viewer to experience emptiness and the expectations that come with it.
