Artists in this exhibition: Andreas Eriksson


ANDREAS ERIKSSON "Content is a Glimpse"

In 2007 Andreas Eriksson was awarded with the renowned Baloise Art Prize at Art Basel, which is linked to a solo exhibition in 2008 in MUMOK in Vienna.

The installation concept for Basel, which includes photographs, painting and a bronze sculpture, is based on the artist’s experiences, impressions and reflections during his long daily walks with his dog – as he explained in a talk about the work.

Andreas Eriksson, who came to Berlin at the beginning of 2000, along with many other young Scandinavian artists, had to leave the city because of his hyper-sensibility to electromagnetic smog, and consequently withdrew to a remote region of Sweden.

During his daily walks, which give the artist an opportunity to closely observe his natural environment, Eriksson repeatedly experiences moments of intense absorption. His artistic production reflects these experiences in a complex and intricate process that demonstrates a high level of precision. This results in documentary records direct painterly gestures, as well as metaphorical pictures and objects.
With astonishing ease, Eriksson succeeds in integrating photography, painting and sculpture in a complex overall installation.
The jury in Basel described his installation as “impressive self-portraits full of serenity and mystery.”

For our exhibition, the artist has created new “shadow-paintings,” as well as ceramic sculptures, photographs, and works on paper, which are directly related to the works exhibited in Basel.
