Contemporary - the largest Nordic auction for contemporary art and photography November 16

Sweden is a well-kept secret among art lovers and art collectors. Not only is Sweden the home of tremendously successful painters such as Jockum Nordström and Karin Mamma Andersson, but many sellers have found that Bukowskis is also a great marketplace for Andy Warhol, Antony Gormley, Irving Penn and Richard Avedon.

Selected works in the upcoming sale:

Almost there (2000) - Maria Friberg (b. 1966) The men are fully capable of creating control, while at the same time it doesn’t seem possible for them to influence their own situation.

DeathForest (2001) - Jockum Nordström (b. 1962)   made his international breakthrough at the Armory Show in 2005. Today, he is featured in exhibitions all over the world and is represented by the David Zwirner Gallery. The collage in this sale is his first important work to be auctioned.

Hardcore (2002)- Nathalie Djurberg (b. 197 8) has conquered the art scene with her violent and bold clay animations.

(est 12 650 - 15 800 euro).
