Patricia Low Contemporary is pleased to present Women for sale, John Kørner’s first exhibition in the US, on the occasion of Nada Miami 2011. There is nothing easy about Kørner’s paintings: problems are at the very core of their conception. In Kørner’s work, the problem of paint – its ever-goading challenge to invention, to create the truly unexpected – becomes a conduit of the problems of the global condition. Themes of labour and economy, exhaustion and exchange run throughout his canvases as a subtext to his enigmatic scenes. Extending from his recent exhibition at the Worker’s Museum in Copenhagen, Woman for Sale is a collection of paintings that explore the phenomenon of economic migration, sex trade, violence, and human trafficking.

Recent solo exhibitions include Women for Sale, at The Workers’ Museum, Co- penhagen, Denmark, 2011; The New Museums, at Gallery Christian Larsen, Stockholm, Sweden, 2009 and Work Out, at Patricia Low Contemporary, Gstaad, Switzerland, 2009. Recent group exhibitions include Außer Haus: Tabula rasa, Galerie im Regierungsviertel at Heidelberger Kunstverein, Heidelberg, Germany, 2011; In the Company of Alice, at Victoria Miro Gallery, London, UK, 2010, and 1st Berlin Kreuzberg Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Germany, 2010.
