Anders Krisar

Anders Krisár was born in 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden. He lives and works in Stockholm. Krisár, whose work is part of several museum collections such as the Johnson Museum of Art, Ithaca, New York, USA and Carnegie Collection, Stockholm, Sweden, is inspired by the human body. 

Krisár’s sculptures often refer to the human form, concerned with formal rigor and abstraction. Produced with a perfectionist approach, some of Krisár’s sculptures, which in some other series are deliberately stained, are objects that disturb on one hand, but also carry fear and beauty. 

In Krisár’s “M (girl)”, a girl of natural dimensions is divided and reunited. Thus, a single figure is split into two parts and turned into twins. In “Half Boy”, there is only one half of a natural sized boy. Violence, which underscores these sculptures, is a recurring theme in Anders Krisár’s work and is handled with care in order to make them look both aesthetic and inevitable.
