Galleri Magnus Karlsson and the publisher Norstedts are pleased to invite you to a book signing and exhibition in gallery on Thursday, April 6, 5–7 pm. On Spring, the third part of Karl Ove Knausgård’s books on the seasons, is a novel about life’s beginning, about light but also about darkness. The book includes a series of paintings by Anna Bjerger, which will be shown in the inner room of the gallery until April 23.
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.
