Kjellesvik, Anders

Painting, printmaking, sculpture

Anders Kjellesvik (b.1980) works with painting, sculpture, printing and performance – in a poetic, humorous and dystopic visual language. Utopian ideas, political contradictions, re-use, activism and spatiality are some of the themes explored. Kjellesvik is part also of the artist collaboration aiPotu, together with Andreas Siqueland (N).Together they make travel-related work that take the form of site and situation specific interventions. The collaboration started in 2004 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen with the purchase of a mobile home from the mid 70s. (www.aipotu.org)
