The gallery has produced a show for Berns for the spring of 2013. Work by american artist Ruvan Wijessoriay are shown through projections, installations and framed work in both the restaurant and hotel lobby.
Ruvan Wijesooriya (b. 1977) is a photographer based in New York City. His unique vision consistently and seamlessly blurs the lines between life, art and commerce in subject areas ranging from landscapes to fashion, music to flowers. His photographs are a record of his interests, passions and inspirations, his approach always immediate, genuine and curious.
Ruvan has shown internationally and is known for the interactive and happening nature of his exhibitions. In February 2012 he curated an exhibition for the Swedish Consulate of New York; March saw an exhibition of his music photographs at SXSW in Austin, Texas. In late Spring he embarked on a tour doing a series of exhibits in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and London. His book, LCD, a documentation of the group LCD Soundsystem, was made available through powerHouse Books in December 2012 after a widely attended and reported launch event in Miami Beach during Art Basel.
His fine art prints are collected by many, most notably the artist Ed Ruscha. Ruvan is currently working on a book about Sweden to be released later in the year. The work in this exhibition is from that forthcoming book.
