The last time we saw Petter Buhagen at TM51 was at the end of 2014, with Ingri Haraldsen, in our gallery at Grünerløkka and TM51 Infill for the show Brakk. The two are now showing collaborative work at TSSK (Trøndelag Senter for Samtidskunst) under the title Turbidity. The exhibition opened on March 26th and will be up until April 19th 2015.
Between these two shows, Buhagen was part of Europe, Europe (curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Thomas Boutoux and Gunnar B. Kvaran); an exhibition focused on diversity and mobility within Europe and exploring the repercussions in European art. The show passed through 8 European cities, including Oslo. Stopping by Grønland’s 1857, Europe, Europe finished in Oslo at the Astrup Fearnley Museum on February 1st 2015.
Recently Buhagen took part in Tilfældet Oslo i Ringsted at Ringsted galleriet in Denmark, an exhibition powered by an article written by Henrik Plenge Jakobsen for Kunstkritikk in 2013 about Oslo’s art-scene.
Buhagen is currently part of NN-A NN-A NN-A – Ny Norsk Abstraksjon, in which Buhagen’s work can be seen in the context of other Norwegian artists pursuing a new abstract expression. This show is curated by Gunnar B. Kvaran, Therese Möllenhoff and Hanne Beate Ueland and also takes place at the Astrup Fearnley Museum.
We congratulate Petter Buhagen on his interview in the April edition of Aftenposten K and look forward to seeing more of his work in the time ahead.
