Christian Andersson, born 1973 in Stockholm, currently 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.
