This event has ended.
What if a work of art could induce in the viewer a certain calming state of mind?
This kind of question was predominant when art was made in the service of higher consciousness. We see it repeated in the religious art of all cultures, and yet it is a question that is somewhat difficult to confront since the dawning of modernism.
Hans Andersson creates dense and richly time-layered drawings, collages and objects which perhaps hold some sense of this ‘timeless’ quality of great religious art. Drawing on numerous experiences and sources, including early electro-acoustic music, Indian Tantric art, architecture and altered states of consciousness, Andersson’s art asks us to surrender and give ourselves over to the complex but eternally intriguing intersecting of matter and time.
Andersson will bring examples of his art work to help expound his talk, and Roger McDonald from AIT will join him later in conversation, and provide some basic consecutive translation.
