From February 10 visual artist John Kørner (b. 1967) presents a site specific installation at Galleri Bo Bjerggaard in the old Meat Packing District in Copenhagen. The exhibition titled Blue Bedroom is Kørner’s second solo exhibition in the gallery.
The fulcrum point of Blue Bedroom is a gigantic installation that takes in the gallery’s three west facing exhibition rooms: a wave that slowly rises throughout the space and finally breaks in the last room. As always, Kørner’s impetus is grounded in current affairs. Paintings and sculptures that thematically circle around the water and destinies that float in and on the ocean. The spectator is met by coldness and a dormitory with open windows and curtains fluttering in the cold winter breeze. The Sandman’s universe itches a bit and is not easily situated between dream and reality.
Opening of the exhibition:
Friday 10 February 2017, 4 PM - 7 PM.
