"Andreas Korsar: Lite lik dig"
2004-03-17 until 2004-04-18
Index - Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation
Using simple means, Andreas Korsar investigates how a drawing is constructed - a cavalcade of directional motions frozen within a structure, where cinematographic and acoustic qualities for example, can be read between the lines. Even the artist’s short animations, often just seconds long, can primarily be interpreted as drawings, where the movement’s potential is fully exploited.
The exhibition "Lite lik dig" (A bit like you) is Andreas Korsár’s first presentation in Stockholm and contains a mix of new work and old, colour and black & white, animation and drawing. Andreas Korsár has previously also worked with music videos and book illustration. The exhibition opening at Index also sees the launch of Andreas Korsár and Jonas Sundvall’s book "Sträcker sig efter telefonen" (Reaching for the Phone), drawings and monologues (2004). Andreas Korsár was educated at Valand School of Fine Art, 1996 – 2000, and lives and works in Gothenburg.
