Visiting Artists
Anders Krisár
Wednesday, June 29th at 12:00pm in Connelly Auditorium
Anders Krisár initially deviated from the mainstream art world and found his coordinates in the multiple, diverging worlds of graffiti, music composition, advertising, and tournament chess. Largely an autodidact, Krisár decided to become a visual artist only in his late twenties. Despite the near-instantaneous recognition he garnered with galleries in Europe and the United States, his position in this self-enclosed world remains that of an outsider. Krisár’s output is primarily in sculpture and his photography may be seen as hermetic or even morbid, playing as it does with casting, molds, and deformation. Yet the artist’s skillful and poetic deployment of a deeply felt intuition has, in a short period of time, given rise to a body of work that reveals the physical, experiential, and societal yearnings and limitations of man, making it altogether human.
