Just recently an interesting exhibition was brought to my attention that I would like to share: Danish artist Lars Bjerre presents a very critical view on society. In his paintings he often depicts humans and pigs. As if this alone would not be some kind of a message he places them in absurd and paradox situations that symbolize humans on the search for their identity. The artist’s first solo exhibition in Germany will open this Friday here in Berlin. More infos and images after the jump.

as a little review of this exhibition. we went there to the opening reception and I was really impressed with the variety and especially the size of the artist’s work. There are some really giant pieces to be found and I love all the little details you can find in the paintings. The exhibition space is also worth mentioning – it’s a perfect match for the art.
If you didn’t go to the opening, check out the show during the following 3 weeks.
