The exhibition is extended until August 1. Open Wednesday July 31 and August 1 between 2–6 pm!
This exhibition is a personal selection of works that all formally resemble the portrait. Some of them are made as portraits of specific people, while others merely use the human face as a means of expression. Common to all drawings, paintings and sculptures is that the depicted a person is the main motif of the work. The oldest artwork in the exhibition dates from the 17th century, the last one was finished only a few weeks ago.

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.
Participating artists: Evgenia Arbugaeva, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, Anna Bjerger, Karin Broos, Maja Droetto, Ann Edholm, Ylva Gislén, Goran Hassanpour, Jenny Johansson, Peter Johansson, Anders Sletvold Moe, Lin de Mol, Susanne Lund Pangrazio, Lovisa Ringborg, Egill Saebjörnsson, Tom Sandqvist, Kristina Skantze, Johan Widén, Association for Social Contribution, Vårdinge Folkhögskola.

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.
We are pleased to present works of Anna Bjerger and Jockum Nordström at the 44th edition of the prestigious art fair FIAC. FIAC hosts a carefully balanced selection of leading international galleries in the iconic Grand Palais in Paris.
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?

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.
Recognizing the growing need for new forms of work space and collaborative environments, Alma is opening its doors on Nybrogatan 8 in Stockholm. A space for work and play, Alma was founded for the sole purpose of nurturing creative people and their ideas.
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.
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.
One night only, first come first served!
Open between 5 pm – 9 pm
Got it for Cheap (GIFC) is a traveling group show with over 200 participtaing artists. All the works are made on roughly 30 x 21cm (A4) paper and priced at 300 SEK each. The exhibition is one night only,and the principle is: first come first served! No previews and no early admission.
The point of departure in Bjerger’s paintings is found, anonymous photographs. She works from seemingly redundant images. Images whose shelf life is long passed. Photographs from outdated travel guides, technical handbooks, knitting magazines. She hoards this source material and mines it for her subjects.
