MOBIUS Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the first solo exhibition in Romania of the Swedish artist Anders Krisár, curated by Anton Svyatsky.
The reception is scheduled for October 12th, starting 7 pm, at Mobius Gallery, located on #2 Mendeleev Street.
Subject of numerous museum shows, Anders Krisár’s work often focuses on the human body. Krisár’s sculptures features or makes reference to the human form, exhibiting a preoccupation with formal rigor and abstraction. Using this exacting approach, he employs precision of form to create intensely personal, psychological landscapes. Krisár’s sculptures – immaculately produced, and often bear a deliberate blemish that is itself impeccably rendered – are discomfiting, objects of simultaneous horror and beauty. The sculptures are uncanny because of the meticulousness with which they are executed; according to Krisár, “I’m a perfectionist because I have to be, it’s not really a choice. And it’s not a striving for satisfaction, it’s rather to avoid pain.
Anders Krisár, born 1973, lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
The exhibition is organized by Mobius Gallery, with the support of the Embassy of Sweden and will be on display until November
