KEWENIG is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in Spain of the artist Elisabeth Frieberg (*1977, Sweden) at the gallery's location in Palma de Mallorca, the 13th century chapel, Sant Feliu Oratory, opening 24 March on the occasion of Art Palma Brunch.
This exhibition takes its name from one of the two key paintings in the show, "Bat Seba, No. 4", which seems to have been created especially for the Oratory. The biblical love story between Bathsheba and King David, rewritten and extended in "Bat Seba" (1984) by the Swedish author Torgny Lindgren (1938 – 2017), provoked clear images of the two protagonists for Frieberg, leading to the two large abstract portraits "Bat Seba, No. 4" and "King David", around which eight other works revolve. The space and layout of the chapel play a very important role for the artist, as if the presentation of her work is a performance.
