Anna Bjerger, Blanket for a Sail, Galleri Magnus Karlsson, 27.3–1.5 2021

You see the law of the ocean
Says you shall never fail
Use your heart as a rudder
Faith as a compass
And a blanket for a sail

–Harry Nilsson

Anna Bjerger, et al. at Nuuk Art Museum, Greenland

NATURE — Home & Workplace

Anna Bjerger takes part in a group exhibition at The Nuuk Art Museum, Greenland.

From press release:
In Greenland, nature plays a special role, both as our home, our pantry and as the place where many find their peace. That's why Nuuk Art Museum has worked to get the exhibition NATURE // Home & Workplace for Nuuk. The exhibition is made up of artists who in small and huge large paintings, sculptures and installations revolve around nature. There are 12 artists from the Nordic countries, including Inuk Silis Høegh from Nuuk.

Anna Bjerger, Gl. Holtegaard, Holte, Denmark

From press release:
With energetic brushstrokes and slow-paced precision Swedish artist Anna Bjerger conjures up a familiar and sensory visual universe harbouring undertones of longing and loneliness in her largest solo exhibition in Denmark to date at Gammel Holtegaard Art Centre.
A woman’s inscrutable gaze, a nonchalant hand holding a lit cigarette, a landscape of dark, wandering figures, a cucumber plant. The figurative motifs of Swedish artist Anna Bjerger are apparently simple yet enigmatic. Her paintings are supremely mastered, low-key, and intensely sensual.

Främlingar / Strangers at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland, Sweden

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.

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, Norway

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

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 8, 6 to 8pm

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.

Charlie Roberts, Anna Bjerger et al. Gallery Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm, Sweden
