Oscar Enberg’s installations are like storyboards for a movie or television show where the tone, meaning and narrative information is conveyed only through physical objects: sets, décor and props. Where typically objects furnish narratives, in Enberg’s work storylines are compressed into sculptural forms.

Oscar Enberg (b. 1988) studied at the Canterbury University’s Ilam School of Fine Arts and now lives and works in Auckland. Recent solo exhibitions include: Jean, Jean et l’enfant sauvage, Thomas Duncan Gallery, Los Angeles (2015); Sire So-and-So or Richard Pågen, Johan Berggren, Malmö (2014); The Pynchons, S01E02: Slouching Towards Dignity, Hopkinson Mossman, Auckland (2014); and The Pynchons S01E01, Gloria Knight, Auckland (2013). Earlier this year, Enberg participated in Les Règles du Jeu / The Rules of the Game at Centre Pompidou, Paris, and in December 2015 he will make a solo exhibition, titled the prophet, the wise, the technician, and the Pharisee, at Artspace, Auckland.
