Curator-Led Tour of Sif Itona Westerberg: Twin Flame, Double Ruin

Price — $10.00 – $20.00

Join the curator of Sif Itona Westerberg: Twin Flame, Double Ruin for a tour of the exhibition.

oin Stephanie Cristello, curator of Sif Itona Westerberg: Twin Flame, Double Ruin, for a tour of the exhibition. This program will provide an in-depth look at Westerberg’s installation of recent sculptural works across the Museum’s first and second floor galleries. Across her practice, the Copenhagen-based artist deals with themes of metamorphosis and hybrid figures. Informed by Classical statuary and ancient mythology, the artist’s intricately carved friezes and bronze sculptures picture a world where the human body, animals, and plants coalesce. For this exhibition, Westerberg engages with the dominant presence of twins in origin stories—a primordial belief in the symmetry, doubling, and inversion used to convey the creation of our world. With attention to specific motifs and works within the collection, Cristello will discuss the artist’s approach to sculpture, where common industrial building materials such as aerated concrete are transformed into delicate engraved surfaces reminiscent of marble bas reliefs, in relation to the Gilded Age architecture and ornamentation of the Nickerson Mansion.

The tour will start in the Main Hall.

Please note: The Driehaus Museum elevator is currently being upgraded and thus temporarily out of service. During this time, the Second Floor galleries are not wheelchair accessible.
