A DANE IN BREMEN

Per Kirby as a guest in the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum

Per Kirkeby (*1938) is a universal artist. He has mastered architecture as well as painting, making movies and sculpturing. Kirkeby can also be found in numerous artistic styles. In his early time he engaged in Pop Art and later turned to the informal painting. But in the 1960s he took part in happenings and worked together with artists like Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik and Charlotte Moorman. In the works of the doctor of geology, nature and the connection between art and science play a large role.

The Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum now traces the complete works of the great Dane with 56 paints, bronze sculptures, drawings and watercolors. It also shows the theme that runs through his works from the beginning up to today: huts, trees and other structures from nature as well as human silhouettes. During the last 50 years, he modified, changed and developed his style multiple times, but the principle of layers of paint shows up at many points, and is similar to layers of stone, which is, next to art, another passion and the original profession of the geologist.

The exhibition takes place in Bremen till June 5, 2016, and in cooperation with the Danish Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, where, up to the beginning of 2015, a retrospective of Paula Modersohn-Becker could be viewed,
