Svanesang is the title of two parallel exhibitions shown at Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, Copenhagen and Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm. It is a joint exhibition project between two of Scandinavia’s most acclaimed artists; Mamma Andersson and Tal R. The first part will opened on August 24th in Copenhagen, the second part opens on August 30th in Stockholm. The exhibition Svanesang consists of new paintings and works on paper. It is the first major presentation of Mamma Andersson in Denmark and the first gallery exhibition of Tal R in Stockholm.
Svanesang is Mamma Andersson and Tal R’s first collaboration, and results of an image dialogue between the two artists. During the past year they have corresponded and sent each other photographs for inspiration. They have also opened up their work process for each other in a conversation about background material, imagery and themes. As a visitor you will find links between their paintings, and the process has also inspired the development of new expressions. In their cooperation they have been careful to maintain an artistic integrity. The works are still unique to each artist, but seen together they also act as a form of conversation or Chinese whispers.
