THREESOME /Friends + Art

05.12 – 09.01.2021


Galerie Mikael Andersen is pleased to welcome you to the opening of the exhibition THREESOME/ Friends + Art containing works by Malene Birger, Lis Kasper Bang and Bertel Bjerre, Saturday 5 December 2020, 12 – 4pm.

The exhibition THREESOME/ Friends + Art can be seen as a free, artistic unfolding across the three invited artist’s close friendship.

Beside their friendship, the artists wish to create a space for creativity and inspiration based on their individual experiences from the fashion, photography, interior and design industries. The exhibition therefore includes photographs, paintings and works on paper. Through a common thread being that they all explore an uninhibited approach with a playful interpretation to the media and materials.

Malene Birger works present time primarily as an artist and with interior projects. She managed to establish her name internationally through her work within the fashion industry; founding two of the most successful fashion houses: Day Birger ét Mikkelsen and By Malene Birger.

At the exhibition at Galerie Mikael Andersen, Malene Birger presents her aesthetic in her well known monochromatic, strong graphic and abstract works, often inspired by African culture and the universe in general, expressing its contrast in the form of light and dark. Malene Birger works from her studios in Greece and Spain.

Lis Kasper Bang is a Danish portrait and art photographer who spent her early years in South Africa and where her interest in photography began. Since Kasper Bang’s first exhibition in 2005, she has experimented with different photo techniques that primarily focus on the human expression: from portraits that seek to capture the essence of the model, to the artistic interpretations of the human form. As a former prize-winning make-up artist, Kasper Bang finds her main inspiration in the world of fashion, film and advertising.

Bertel Bjerre was originally trained as a men’s fashion designer from the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. Over the years and after a longer period and study in Pientrasanta in northern Italy, he developed and worked with sculpture and later with painting.

Bertel Bjerre spends most of his time in the northern part of Zealand, where the powerful nature, horizon, constant weather changes and landscapes become a great source of inspiration. He works primarily with acrylic and his artistic approach bridge between design and nature.
