KÖNIG GALERIE is pleased to participate in Enter Art Fair's second edition presenting a solo booth with works by Bjane Melgaard as well as a selection of works by gallery artists such as Katharina Grosse, Jeppe Hein, Alicja Kwade and Elmgreen & Dragset.
Bjarne Melgaard is a Norwegian artist (b. 1967 in Sydney, Australia), who lives and works in Oslo. Social, political and ideological issues are at the core of Bjarne Melgaard's oeuvre. His art deals with the dark side of humanity, such as self- destruction, deviant sexuality and odd religious beliefs. It often discusses, investigates and pushes the boundaries of societal acceptance. Melgaard's work has been seen in numerous group and solo shows and at international art fairs such as the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo, the Munch Museum, Oslo, the Biennale de Lyon, and the Whitney Biennale in New York. He represented Norway at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. Working with Acute Art, Bjarne Melgaard created his first VR work My Trip, which was shown at the Julia Stoschek Collection.
