Hans Andersson

 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.

 Neither his exhibitions nor artworks are given titles. This is a clue on how to perceive his practice. It shows a movement towards a non-language as an emancipation from identification with the self-narrative. To be able to see the familiar in the unfamiliar or to discover something new in what is already known.

 Andersson graduated from Konstfack - University College of Arts, Craft and Design in 2005. He has received several awards and grants such as Helge Ax: son Johnson Foundation and the Arts Grants Committee working grant. He has exhibited extensively in solo and group show such as "Swedish Art Now" (Sven Harrys Konstmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden, 2016), "Untitled" (Solo exhibition, Gallery Forsblom Helsinki, Finland, 2017) and Noco "If you don't like art.." (Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium, Norway, 2017). His works are represented in several collections such as the Malmö Art Museum, Malmö and the Nordic Contemporary Art Colloection.
