Christian Andersson

b. 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden / Lives and works in Malmö, Sweden

Ander­s­son presents alter­na­tive ways of inter­pret­ing the truth in order to illus­trate that there is no sin­gle objec­tively true story. He poses ques­tions about think­ing and see­ing to make us aware of the idea sys­tems that pen­e­trate us and that are con­tin­u­ally evolv­ing dur­ing the course of his­tory. As a point of depar­ture in art and archi­tec­tural his­tory, pop­u­lar cul­ture, lit­er­a­ture, and the canon of west­ern civ­i­liza­tion, Ander­s­son reminds the viewer that there are always alternative ways of look­ing at the world. He presents for­got­ten or repressed facts in a new way and chal­leng­es pat­terns of thought that too often have become rigid. Andersson’s art offers plenty of space for mean­der­ing thoughts, and explores the bound­aries between the plau­si­ble and implau­si­ble. Jux­ta­pos­ing emo­tion and rea­son, he estab­lishes enough momen­tary doubt to test our pow­ers of comprehension.
