Asger Harbou Gjerdevik: Pictures in Pictures

Alice Folker Gallery, Copenhagen

Excerpt from the exhibition text Pictures in Pictures

“At times, graphic motifs are identifiable and at others they dissolve into the painterly haze. Gjerdevik is fascinated by the results of layering images as they rise above and plummet beneath the painted surface, disguising and revealing one another to enigmatic effect. Gjerdevik is equally drawn to the connections between unlikely things – different types of mark-making, colours and motifs, which have not necessarily been seen together before. He invites us to be curious, to be surprised by the connections we might discover amidst the painterly and printed layers.”

Jiri Georg Dokoupil: broken concepts and false memories

Galleri Susanne Ottesen, Copenhagen

Excerpt from the exhibition text The Body and Blood and Bubbly Rebellion

“Dokoupil’s paintings ascend the heights of spiritual ecstasy and plumb the lows of earthly desire with a distinct sense of sincerity and impish humour. If the Soap Bubble Paintings have the power to transcend time and space, other series are resolutely tied to more temporal and kitsch matters – cars on empty highways and cows grazing in fields. For Dokoupil, there is no overarching philosophy that binds art and the universe, there is no divine inspiration behind the varied techniques of his career. There is only disruption and the breaking of concepts.”

Janaina Tschäpe: Wandelstern

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, Copenhagen

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard presents Janaina Tschäpe’s fifth solo exhibition at Galleri Bo Bjerggaard. Tschäpe reimagines the traditions of landscape painting and self-portraiture to explore the personal and universal experience of nature. With each of her paintings, Tschäpe carves out a space in which the sensations of nature—the first light of dawn, the morning dew, and gathering storms—can resurface.

Marking the first phase of Hirst’s yearlong takeover of the Britannia Street gallery, the exhibition featured rarely seen works by the artist created between 1993 and 2021.
