Anna Bjerger’s fascination is in the construction of an image. She works from photographs. Having found an image it might lie around her studio for some years while she absorbs its essence. The photographs she chose to work from for this show all have an inherent interference, either in the photographic process such as vaseline or coloured filters on the lens, or oil and turps stains from Bjerger’s studio. When painted, these disruptions cause the viewer to rethink the image and take a slower look.
Anna Bjerger has solo-exhibitions in Europe and US, including Galleria Monica Gardenas, Milan, Italy, Fullrsta Gård, Stockholm, Sweden, Paradise Row, London, UK and David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark. Group exhibitions include David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark, Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin, Ireland, Våxsjo Konsthall, Sweden, Dublin Contemporary, Dublin, Ireland, Museo de la Ciudad de Querótaro, Mexico.
