Review from Omkonst on soloexhibition at Gallery Forsblom

http://www.omkonst.com/18-varelas-andersson-lindstrom.shtml

Om Jannis Varelas står för det utåtagerande provokativa så beskriver Hans Andersson snarast det motsatta. Här är det den poetiska lågmäldheten inom strikt givna ramar som gäller. Kopplingen till Kurt Schwitters dadaistiska collageteknik är så uppenbar att man närmast kan bortse från den. Nästan hundra år efter Schwitters plockar Hans Andersson upp en konstnärlig teknik som aldrig riktigt uttömdes, aldrig avslutades eller blev passé. Lika stark är fortfarande dess potential, lika överraskande dess produkt. Men det krävs en lyhörd utövare, en formberusad hantverkare, för att förmå balansera det flyktigt slumpmässiga mot det bildspråkligt sammansatta. En sådan är uppenbarligen Hans Andersson.
I de små färgfacetterade collagen, likväl som i de flera meter höga och gråskimrande, är det snarare en pointililstisk målare än en dadaistisk collagemästare vi ser frukten av. Så fritt förhöll sig sällan Schwitters. Där fanns oftast en tidstypisk dominans av bruntoner, vilka i Hans Anderssons fall ofta byts mot välvalda färgackord med spektralklingande kolorit. Kanske är det därför Anderssons bilder ser så uppdaterat samtida ut, trots deras traderade kopplingar bakåt till nittonhundratalets förmodligen mest omstörtande konstriktning till form och uppsåt: dadaismen.

AIT ARTIST TALK #72
“History flows from all the presents- Artist Talk by Hans Andersson from Sweden”
Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Time: 19:00-21:00 (18:30 Door open)
Venue: Daikanyama AIT Room
*All admissions with 1 drink / Booking required / Summarized Japanese translation available

AIT is pleased to host the artist talk by our current artist in residence from Sweden, Hans Andersson, with the support of Iaspis.

What if a work of art could induce in the viewer a certain calming state of mind?
This kind of question was predominant when art was made in the service of higher consciousness. We see it repeated in the religious art of all cultures, and yet it is a question that is somewhat difficult to confront since the dawning of modernism.
Hans Andersson creates dense and richly time-layered drawings, collages and objects which perhaps hold some sense of this ‘timeless’ quality of great religious art. Drawing on numerous experiences and sources, including early electro-acoustic music, Indian Tantric art, architecture and altered states of consciousness, Andersson’s art asks us to surrender and give ourselves over to the complex but eternally intruiging intersecting of matter and time.
Andersson will bring examples of his art work to help expound his talk, and Roger McDonald from AIT will join him later in conversation, and provide some basic consecutive translation.
We hope that you can join us.

[Artist Profile]
Hans Andersson (b.1979 in Kalmar, lives and works in Stockholm)
Hans Andersson works with abstract images and sculptural objects from found materials. His work is a continuous questioning of the materials, their heritage and their internal and external qualities and tension. His process is intuitive and nonlinear. The philosopher Simone Weil states that a subject acts through its non-actions. The subject acts, but it is no longer the will that is the foundation for its actions, it is, on the contrary, a sort of obedience. Art, and philosophy as a concept, should according to Weil be received in awaiting and treated with contemplation. Hans Andersson spend a great deal of time with his work. The procedure is both gentle and spontaneous
