Installation view "Christian Andersson – When Science Fiction Was Dead", CIAJG Guimarães Portugal 2018

Christian Andersson

Christian Andersson, born 1973 in Stockholm, currently lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.
With his ambition of rather exploring multiple viewpoints simultaneously than presenting a singular approach to reality, Christian Andersson incorporates fiction into the real world within his installations, videos and drawings. “My aim is to share imprints of my thoughts that might introduce the viewer to a more multi-layered perception of the world”, the artist states.

Andersson has had solo exhibitions at Museum CIAJG, Guimaraes (2018), the Kunstmuseum Thun (2015), as well as the Palais de Tokyo, Paris and Moderna Museet, Malmö (both 2011). His work has been on view in group exhibitions at Boimans van Beuningen Museum Rotterdam, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (both 2016), Medizinhistorisches Museum Berlin (2015), Magazin 4, Bregenz (2014), Matadero, Madrid and the 12th Biennale de Lyon (both 2013).
