Galleri Bo Bjerggaard (DK)

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard was founded in 1999 and moved to its current location in the Meat Packing District in 2007. The gallery represents established international artists based around a core focus on the most important Danish painters of the current and recent generations. The gallery regularly participates in international fairs including the Armory and Art Cologne, and runs Ekely, a shop with prints, editions, books and ceramics by gallery artists and special projects by invited guests.

Curated for
CHART

For CHART 2021, Galleri Bo Bjerggaard presents an exhibition with a selection of major works by gallery artists with a focus on painting and sculpture. This will include large bronze sculptures by Tal R, important blackboard paintings from 2007 by Per Kirkeby, a large-scale mixed media work by Peter Linde Busk and new paintings by John Kørner, A K Dolven, Janaina Tschäpe and Ivan Andersen. The booth presentation serves to present each work’s distinct individual character while maintaining a sense of cohesive unity. Below is a highlight of Peter Linde Busk's practice.

Peter Linde Busk (DK)

Peter Linde Busk works with painting, collage, sculpture, and drawing. Busk’s imagery is often peopled with crooked and contorted figures. Busk deals with transitions, contradictions, and limits - essentially the zone between the figurative and the abstract. This amounts to a broad evocation of issues concerning the creation of the image and a motif-related exploration of the conflict between an inner emotional state, the outer world and a third sphere that might result from their collision. Ugly and uncontrolled elements often stand in stark contrast to the meticulously ornamented and thoroughly wrought materiality that is otherwise so distinct in Busk’s practice.

Peter Linde Busk was born in Copenhagen in 1973. He trained at the Slade School of Fine Art (London), Hunter College of Art (New York) and the Royal Academy of Arts (London), from which he graduated in 2009. In 2008, he studied at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Professor Peter Doig. Busk’s works are represented in the Rubell Family Collection (Miami) and the Saatchi Collection (London), and here in Denmark in Holstebro Kunstmuseum and ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Ishøj.
