Galleri Bo Bjerggaard

Copenhagen

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard was founded in 1999. Initially located in the center of Copenhagen, in 2007 the gallery moved to a larger location in the old Meat Packing District.

Galleri Bo Bjerggaard presents international contemporary art from Europe and America. While its main focus is contemporary painting, the gallery also exhibits sculpture, photography, video and installations. The gallery has two separate exhibitions spaces, each with two to three adjoining rooms, allowing for two exhibitions to be presented simultaneously. The gallery participates in international art fairs throughout Europe and North America.

Peter Linde Busk

Peter Linde Busk (b. 1973) works with painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture and drawing. Peter Linde Busk’s imagery is often peopled with crooked and contorted figures that stand alone or in small groups. Busk deals with transitions, contradictions and limits, essentially the zone between the figurative and the abstract. This amounts to issues concerning the creation of the image itself, or a motif-related exploration of the conflict between an inner emotional state and the outer world and the state that might result from their collision. Ugly and uncontrolled elements stand in vivid contrast to the meticulously ornamented and thoroughly wrought materiality that is also so distinctive of Busk’s works. 

The work of Peter Linde Busk is represented at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Holstebro Museum of Art; Rubell Family Collection, Miami; and Ny Carlsberg Foundation, Denmark.
