CEAC exhibition

Irina Birger lived the first part of her life in Eastern Europe, where she was taught a traditional approach to art and this has had a strong impact on her further work’s development. Irina has since tried to combine this communist past, and that of the cultural influences of the other countries she has lived in, within the frame of Western contemporary art. This mixed background of Irina’s has always impacted on her work in an anthropological way and sometimes in her choice of medium. Today Irina works with animation, video, installation, performance and drawing.

As Irina often works in different countries she always attempts to embrace the genius Loci and reflect on her own connection to it. Being a habitual nomad, she is constantly searching for the link between her individual languages of expression to a culture she has become part of.
