Anders Krisár

Faulconer Gallery,
Grinnell College of Art

Iowa, United States

November 26th - December 1st

The Swedish artist Anders Krisár was included in the Faulconer Gallery's spring 2005 exhibition, Scandinavian Photography 1: Sweden. Since then he has turned to sculpture, producing figurative pieces that are uncannily lifelike — cast primarily from members of the artist's own family — and explore the impact of familial relationships and sociological structures on our lives as individuals in a virtual-reality age when physical contact — to imprint, or to be "touched" — is conceived as transgressive rather than palliative.
