Works on Paper
January 26 – April 6, 2019

Ilse D’Hollander, Untitled, 1996

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard is hosting the exhibition titled Works on Paper that features the works by 27 different artists with 27 different approaches to paper as a material. The works are on view in the gallery’s west rooms through April 6, 2019.

According to the Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, one of its first exhibitions was of the works on paper by such heavyweights of the period as Baselitz, Fautrier, Immendorf, Jorn, Kirkeby, Lupertz, Mortensen, Penck, Picabia, and Polke. Therefore, to mark their anniversary, this exhibition celebrates with a new show of works on paper.

John Korner, Untitled, 2019

Brigitte Waldach, Reflex Love…, 2019 / An Extraordinary Period…, 2019

The exhibition presents contemporary works by artists with whom the gallery has worked over the years, alongside works by other internationally-known artists.

All the artists here have worked with paper as their primary medium. The exhibition testifies to the medium’s potential for embracing big and small, the representational and the abstract, lines and drawings, colors and pattern, the detailed and the fleeting. The materials likewise range from pencil and gouache to pastel and acrylic spray paint, collage, oil pastel, acrylic, and much more.

Jannis Kounellis, Untitled, 2015

Artists draw like never before, and often thematically. These drawings are not notes or drafts of more perfect future works but finished works in their own right – comments, perhaps, on the practice of art now, at the end of the 20th century. There is an eco­nomic aspect to this production, naturally, since a drawing is more affordable than an oil painting or a sculpture. But that is not the whole truth. There is also a metaphysical aspect. Far more than any other artistic expression, drawings have kept their inno­cence and credibility. There is an air of immediacy and authenticity about them that painting, for one, seems currently to have lost. There is something spontaneous and incredibly personal about drawings. We believe they will take us closer to the artistic act of creation and, in turn, to the real and the true. The inspiration is right there – on paper.

– Mikael Wivel, May 1999
