Ivan Liovik Ebel

About

'Interspace’ is probably the term that best summarises Ivan Liovik Ebel’s work. For him, the confrontation with the relativity of perception, forms of non-distinguishability and the relationship between time and space stand behind this term. It is always about the attempt to stage a condition beyond strict opposites such as the visible and the non-visible, the past and the future, to abolish or capture transitions between them.
"Individual works and series based on repeated gestures and regulating principles question the idea of the original and the copy, temporality, change, chronology and the relationship between time and space in the process of creating an image", states Ivan Liovik Ebel on his Loop series.
„All of my works are distinguished by an attempt to freeze a non freezable moment. A moment that marks the edge of antagonistic categories such as: the past and the future, the visible and the non-visible, the inner and the outer, the surface and the volume. I am fascinated and always looking for this relativity of perception switch.“

Ivan Liovik Ebel (born 1983 in Neuchatel / CH) lives and works in Berlin. He received his Masters in Contemporary Arts Practice from the Bern University of the Arts. In 2017 the artist was on the short list of the Aeschlimann Corti-Stipend and in 2015 he was nominated for the Berlin Art Prize.
His work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions: at Kunsthaus Langenthal (CH), Kunsthalle Bern (CH), Kunstmuseum Bern (CH), CACN Centre d’Art Contemporain de Nîmes (F), Neue Galerie, London (GB) and Bern (CH), Marks Blond Project, Bern (CH), ZQM Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Lage Egal Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Galerie Widmer Theodoridis, Zürich (CH), Annka Kultys Gallery, London (GB), Galerie Valérie Delaunay / Paris (F), Galerie 3000, Bern (CH), Espace Art & Essai, Rennes (F), Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art, Berlin (DE), among many others and as well at art fairs such as Art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher).
