LYNX is proud to present “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow”, with new works by Jan-Fredrik Bjerk

“I got the idea when I walked past this building site. It was next door to GE Healthcare. Polystyrene, concrete and reinforcing bars all clashed together. I really liked that. Playful and constructive. Now I understand why the old pensioners like to stand looking at construction sites.” J-F.B, 2014

In his solo exhibition at LYNX, Jan-Fredrik Bjerk presents a site-specific central intervention with the pavilion room in the form of a circular depression in the floor, in addition to one of his latest oil paintings.

With “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and..”, Bjerk contemplates procrastination and the experience of being locked in sullen, repetitious acts, in wait of uncovering the right thing to do. As the central work of “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and..” alludes to the “loading” symbol or alternately, the Spinning Wheel of Death, it also hints at the repetitiveness of the world of contemporary art, if not everywhere else. Affiliation and being part of a scene might be a stronger urge than any other, making artists produce works in line with what others are doing instead of breaking new ground.

His oil paintings have a gentle, almost suave expression, and at the same time there is something slightly uncanny about them. Bjerk’s rough brushstrokes and subtle, but skillful use of colours reveal an artist unquestionably soaked in the abstract tradition, yet his intangible, semi-figurative style is also reminiscent of Martin Kippenberger’s ambiguity towards technique and subject.

It doesn’t take too long to sense the quiet restlessness that pervades through “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and..”, though underneath that lies a swirling current of youthful nerve and perception necessary for breaking out of what is set.
(Michael Hare, 2014)

Jan-Fredrik Bjerk: (b. 1984). Lives and works in Oslo, Norway. He has a BA in fine art from Kingston University and had residency at Citè des Arts in Paris. Bjerk mainly works with painting and sound projects.
