Installed | Anne Lindberg at Dolphin

The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.

shift is a compelling 26 foot installation by Kansas City based artist
Anne Lindberg on exhibit at Dolphin Gallery.

This work represents her fifth in a series of site based 3 dimensional thread drawings. Comprised of staples and luminous rayon thread installed from one gallery wall to another, it effectively questions our notion of space and dimension. The form expands in volume as a wedge stretching across perpendicular walls as if at once catapulted and now captured and preserved. Utilizing thousands of feet of varying shades of white and yellow thread, shift creates or draws lines formed in shadow against the walls.

Anne Lindberg’s work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad including the Nevada Museum of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The Drawing Center in NYC, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Sheldon Memorial Art Museum, Tegnerforbundet, The Writer’s Place, Macalester College, as well as venues in New Zealand, Norway, Brazil, Quebec and Japan. Her work is held in museum and corporate collections including the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Sprint Corporation, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Niwako Kimono Company in Nagoya, Japan, American Century Investments, and H&R Block, in addition to private collections. Her newest work has been included in exhibitions at the Tegnerforbundet in Oslo, Norway, SESC Bom Retiro Cultural Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil, America:Now and in Kansas City, and Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University.
