ANDERS KRISÀR: FLESH MIRROR
May 15 – June 15, 2014
Christian Larsen Gallery
Stockholm, Sweden

Gallery Christian Larsen presents celebrated Swedish artist Anders Krisár. Known for his realistic sculptures depicting child-like, sexless human forms (usually fragmented or deeply imprinted with symbolic shapes), Krisár strives towards absolute purity and perfection in his work, a gesture which imbues the seemingly cerebral and sterile forms of his creations with a profound emotional power.

For his current show at Christian Larsen titled ‘Flesh Mirror’, Krisár presents some of his signature sculptures together with a selection from his ‘Flesh Clouds’ (2014) series: large-scale elegant photograms in a deep dark red colour that were produced by projecting a light beam directly on photographic paper in a dark room while people were moving in front of it, thus capturing the traces of their shadows in a physical way.

The centrepiece of the exhibition however, is the new work ‘Mirror Man’ (2014), where a mirror in the shape of a human stands in front of a skin-coloured canvas, as a symbol of how our identities and personalities are defined by what we see and experience in our environment.

Anders Krisár was born in 1973 and is based in Stockholm, Sweden. His work which has been shown extensively in solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe, the USA and Russia, also features in some of the largest public and private collections in Sweden and around the world. He is currently participating in the group exhibition ‘Leiblichkeit und Sexualität’ at the Votive Church in Vienna, along with artists such as Doug Aitken, Erwin Wurm, Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst. In the autumn of 2014, Anders Krisár will move his studio to New York.
