Christian Andersson — From Lucy with love (Palais)


Installation, mixed media

Christian Andersson
From Lucy with love (Palais)

Past: October 7 → November 6, 2011

Sparse yet sophisticated, Christian Andersson’s installations play with appearances. in exploring the relationships between shadows and light, transparency and reflection, the artist creates true “perception traps.” Systematically, viewers are confronted with a mechanism that obstructs and diverts their preconceptions.

with From Lucy with love, visitors are invited to a journey through to the origins: a contemporary cabinet of curiosities that negotiates between the museum’s roles as both conservation archive and conveyor of truth. with the help of thorough research and humor, Christian Andersson gives us a new, personal version of history. The artist poses questions about how we think and how we see in order to make us conscious of the ideological systems that surround us and that are constantly changing over the course of history.
