Galleri Susanne Ottesen (DK)
Kirsten Ortwed & Andreas Eriksson
Galleri Susanne Ottesen was founded in 1983. It was one of a small number of galleries in Denmark to champion a generation of local and international artists who were transforming the way art was thought. Galleri Susanne Ottesen has been building on this foundation, supporting succeeding generations.
Kirsten Ortwed was born in Copenhagen in 1948 and has lived and worked in Cologne, Germany, and Pietrasanta, Italy, since 1982. She studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under Arthur Addi Köpke and Professor Gunnar Aagaard Andersen. Her first solo exhibition was in 1976 at Galleri 38, Copenhagen. Kirsten Ortwed’s work unfolds the relation between form, space, and material, constantly investigating what a sculpture is.
The Swedish artist Andreas Eriksson works conceptually across a range of different media, such as painting, photography, sculpture, and installation. Andreas Eriksson’s works are in dialogue with nature and the landscape, often encompassing a quiet, poetic, and understated sensibility, which takes hold of the spectator. In 2017, Andreas Eriksson finished a major public commission at Nya Karolinska Solna Hospital in Stockholm. He has exhibited internationally at Momentum in Moss in 2009, The Nordic Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2011, Venice, Italy, 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2012) and Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, amongst other.
