Christian Andersson, born 1973 in Stockholm, currently lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.
With his ambition of rather exploring multiple viewpoints simultaneously than presenting a singular approach to reality, Christian Andersson incorporates fiction into the real world within his installations, videos and drawings. “My aim is to share imprints of my thoughts that might introduce the viewer to a more multi-layered perception of the world” the artist states.

He recently had solo exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum Thun in 2015, as well as the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and Moderna Museet, Malmö (both 2011). His work lately has been on view in group exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (2016); Medizinhistorisches Museum, Berlin (2015); Magazin 4, Bregenz (2014); Matadero, Madrid and the 12th Biennale de Lyon (both 2013). Later this year his works will be on view in group shows at the Boimans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam and the Living Art Museum in Reykjavik. He is currently working on an exhibition project in Le Havre curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler and a solo exhibition at CIAJG, Guimaraes. Put the Cobwebs Back in Place is his fifth exhibition with Galerie Nordenhake.
