Galleri Magnus Karlsson & Galleri Bo Bjerggaard
Svanesang (Swan Song) is the title of two parallel exhibitions shown at Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, Copenhagen and Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm. It is a joint exhibition project between two of Scandinavia’s most acclaimed artists; Mamma Andersson and Tal R. The first part will open on August 24 in Copenhagen, the second part on August 30 in Stockholm. The exhibitions Svanesang consists of new paintings and works on paper. It is the first major presentation of Mamma Andersson in Denmark and the first gallery exhibition of Tal R in Stockholm.
Svanesang is Mamma Andersson and Tal R’s first collaboration, and it is the result of an image dialogue between the two artists. During the past year they have corresponded and sent each other photographs for inspiration. They have also opened up their work process in a conversation about background material, imagery and themes. As a visitor you will find links between their paintings, and the process has also inspired the development of new expressions. In their cooperation they have been careful to maintain an artistic integrity. The works are still unique to each artist, but seen together they also act as a form of conversation or Chinese whispers.
A catalogue with all the works and a text by Synne Rifbjerg (Danish author and journalist) will be published in conjunction with the exhibitions. A more extensive book based on the cooperation between the two artists will be released later this year.
