Galerie Pugliese Levi zeigt von Freitag, 5. März bis Dienstag, 9. März 2021 ein Werk der Künstlerin Birgitte Lund. Die Ausstellungsreihe heißt one by one, in der jeweils ein Werk einer Künstlerin oder eines Künstlers der Galerie für einige Tage im Galerieschaufenster gezeigt wird.


Gallery Pugliese Levi will be showing a work by artist Birgitte Lund from Friday 5 March to Tuesday 9 March 2021. The exhibition series is called one by one, in which one work by each of the gallery’s artists is shown for a few days in the gallery window.
Birgitte Lund’s canvasses are places where things meet. Acrylic painted areas, pieces of paper, liquid rubber and other fluids – an imprint of organic structure. They meet on the canvas and attempt to unite in a composition; an abstract collage. The works are often constructed around areas that divide the canvas into horizontal bands, as in the series “Psychedelic Landscapes”. Some are immediately beautiful colour compositions in the tradition of Mark Rothko. But strict beauty must be challenged – and it is – with things that don’t fit in – things that are possibly even irritating, ugly and nasty. That’s the way it is with visual dissonance. The dissonances are not however allowed to just stand there and irritate. They are made
to communicate with each other and with the background, by adding new layers and bridges so that balance is restored, but the dissonance remains. As a rule, the dissonances are not this harsh. They function as tension fields in the picture that make its beauty long-lasting.’ (Torben Sangild)
“My work revolves around the discovery of pictorial landscapes – like an archeologist uncovering but in reverse order. The landscapes are built up through many textured layers. Tracks are left behind on absorbent or repellent surfaces. Lines, marks, calcified figures from my graphical sketches, drawings and earlier works form landmarks on the surface.” (Birgitte Lund)
Born in Denmark in 1959, Birgitte Lund studied Textile Painting and Printmaking at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) from 1979 to 1984 and Copperprint at the Niels Borch Jensen Workshop from 1995 to 1997. Since 1985 Birgitte Lund has shown her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her work was presented for the first time in Germany at Galerie Pugliese Levi in 2018. In recent years, she received grants and scholarships, artist residencies and awards. Birgitte Lund teaches at the National Gallery of Denmark since 2010 and lives in Copenhagen.
