Hans Andersson's creative world blooms in this brand new monograph that we're very proud to publish. Found photographs, geometrical patterns, torn sheets, crayons and pencils merge in a poetic and low-key expression of a mind fascinated by the dynamic relationship between inner and outer worlds. With an introduction in English by well-renowned scholar of art and esotericism, Peter Cornell. Published in cooperation with Angelika Knäpper Gallery in Stockholm.

“From the very beginning, self-chosen poverty has offered itself as a path towards spiritual practices, in a more modest way than with the Christian ascetics in the desert. In the art of our times a movement like Arte Povera has, in names like Beuys, Burri and Paolini, reconnected to this tradition. Today, when the display windows overflow, the poor and obsolete expressions of a work of art position themselves in shocking contrast to the seductive commercial aesthetics and commodity fetishism that permeate contemporary culture: reclaiming the inner life from the excesses of the material world.” (Peter Cornell, from the foreword)

The limited edition comes in a slipcase, along with a unique, original ink drawing on 300 g Arches paper by Andersson. Size of artwork: 26,9 x 19,9 cm. Limited edition of 25 copies.
