Artist-Sub-Page 35 - Ville Andersson
Back to Archive
Ville Andersson's exhibition ‘My Little Empire’ purports to present various cherished objects of a fictional art collector. In fact, the show consisted of works that the artist has created himself across a range of styles and techniques.
Andersson is a contemporary artist who does not limit himself to only one technique: he allows the medium directs the work – and vice versa – employing text, painting, ink drawing and various photographic techniques.
Andersson’s works are engaged in a conversation and exploration of both the history of art and of diverse contemporary issues. Not surprisingly, his art seems to make a quite conscious point about the astounding multiplicity of cultural traditions – even as, ultimately, each artwork is clearly rooted to same quite unique source.
In conjunction with the ‘My Little Empire’ exhibition, a trilingual publication My Little Empire has also been published.
