Austrian artist-in-residence
Tim Sharp
March — May, 2009

Artist talk and reception (with Lisl Ponger)
Saturday, April 11, 3PM

The Or Gallery is pleased to announce a residency by Vienna-based artist Tim Sharp, concurrent with a residency by Lisl Ponger, both of which are supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture.

Sharp’s work is concerned with the construction of historical and personal memory. In his photo work he deals with the relationship between image and text while his films explore the changing relationship of image to sound and the mutability of the documentary assertion made by lens-based images.

He has taken part in many international exhibitions and film festivals including Routes – Imaging Travel and Migration in the Grazer Kunstverein; Black Atlantic in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin as well as Shake in the OK Centrum für Gegenwartskunst, Linz and Villa Arson, Nice. More recently he participated in TIEFENRAUSCH also at the OK Centrum für Gegenwartskunst, Linz.

In 2005 and 2006 he took part in shows in the Kunsthalle Dresden where he will be showing new work in 2010 as part of the series of exhibitions Notes on the Empire.
