Anna-Eva Bergman and Vera Pagava by Juliette Persilier

Translation of an exhibition text published by Jérôme Poggi (Paris), April-June 2021.

This almost-silence from the artists, like a murmur, reveals the spiritual part of their respective works. Bergman and Pagava were both driven by the idea that an artwork must be a harmonious whole, within which rhythm and light determine the formal arrangement. It is no coincidence that their pictorial techniques borrow from Byzantine art.
