Anna Bjerger et al., Johannes Larsen Museum, Kerteminde, Denmark

From press release:

Let a group of Nordic artists take you along on a grand experience of nature. They all have this in common: they live and work in natural places.

It is well known that Johannes Larsen lived and worked in Kerteminde, where he could see out his window to the magnificent, fertile garden and to the sea, as his closest neighbours! He was surrounded by grand and varied nature, and it was to a high degree fundamental for his work. Nature is the motif, the daily motif is nature.

Anna Bjerger, Le Manoir, Banyuls-sur-Mer, Frankrike

This summer we will present the first exhibition at the gallery’s co-owned hotel Le Manoir in Banyuls-sur-Mer. This little gem is located in French Catalonia where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean Sea. Works by our gallery artists are shown in the public areas and bedrooms throughout the hotel. In a solo presentation, Anna Bjerger will be presenting new paintings and works on paper in the hotel dining room, library and bar. The exhibition is a way to further connect with the local audience and explore potential regional collaborations.

Cries and Whispers at Trafo Kunsthall, Oslo, Norge

Cries and Whispers is a group exhibition presenting Swedish contemporary painting and sculpture. Here, eight artists, born in the 60s, 70s and 80s, are invited to represent a figurative art movement that has received great attention in Sweden and internationally. The title, borrowed from Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers from 1972, echoes in the exhibition. There is a strong relationship between these artists, but also crucial differences in their approach. Both the intimate, vulnerable whispers and the distant, powerful cries can be traced.

Anna Bjerger et. al., Nordic Contemporary, Paris, France

Group show with Anna Bjerger, Astrid Svangren, Jesper Just, Tal R, Anna Uddenberg among others.

Nordic Contemporary's press text:

To Sink. To sink below. Something. A surface.

The exhibition is about a certain set of logic based around questions of sinking into, an unconscious action, a pull of gravity that swallows you up in a way, like Scarlett

Johansen as she walks into the dark in the film Under the Skin; towards something, away from something: An identity, a material, a past, a screen?

Anna Bjerger, Moniquemeloche, Chicago, USA

Anna Bjerger, Salzburger Kunstverein

From press release:

This exhibition modestly raises questions of phenomenology today through the lens of several contemporary painters. Some of the painters are working with more abstract forms of expression, while others are painting figuratively or representationally. Landscape painting is also present in this exhibition. The common denominator is a link the curator makes around ideas of perception and examining aspects of phenomena, as identifiable in each of the artists’ work.

Anna Bjerger, Kristianstads konsthall, Sweden

Anna Bjerger’s art originates in found images from older books and magazines. She often chooses mundane and trivial subjects with a random composition. During the process, something indefinable arises in the meeting between the subject and her painting technique. Taken out of their original context, the images are opened up for new interpretations. They are captured moments filled with memory, melancholy, mystery but also with recognition.

Anna Bjerger, Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin, Ireland

Robert Armstrong & Anna Bjerger

Painters have a complex relationship with their source material. While it provides them with vital information and can often stimulate certain illuminating reactions within them, it can also act as a self-imposed limit, which, once introduced, must be escaped from. Slips and Glimpses, an exhibition of new work by Anna Bjerger and Robert Armstrong delivers moments of both vivid immersion and profound escape.
