Hans Andersson

Hans Andersson

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.
