Hans Andersson Exhibition
This event has ended.
Over the years, Hans Andersson has been working with abstract images and sculptural objects using found materials. The artist creates new histories through his long-time manual work on objects such as paper bags, plastics, metal scraps, and old photo albums abandoned on the streets with their own meanings and history and sublimates them as an artwork. Andersson’s working style is both spontaneous and passive. He purposely faces to the materials without having a clear plan, and the artist himself will change along with the works and the environment of working place. His production method, which excludes predictions and semantic interpretation and places an emphasis on purely experiencing the situation, is like meditation, and his works may be a record of a spiritual journey of the artist. He is influenced by Zen thought, Kitaro Nishida’s philosophy, and Mono-ha. In this exhibition, a huge four-meter work and paper collages from his time in Japan in 2017 are accompanied by sculptural objects using metal and leather.
