conversation XXIII 28/8/13

Virginia Overton (*1971, lives and works in New York) in conversation with Tenzing Barshee (Assistant Curator, Kunsthalle Bern) 


Massive pickup trucks appear in Virginia Overton’s work in various ways: as a motive in photographs, as means of transport and working tool in the construction process of her exhibitions and last but not least as a part of her installations. On the occasion of her solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern, she discusses the role and significance of trucks in her artistic work as well as their functions and symbolic values in everyday life with Tenzing Barshee.
