Friday April 29, 17:00-20:00, Herðubreið
Please join us for a pop-up exhibition of new works on paper by Andreas Senoner. Light refreshments will be available and the artist will give a brief introduction to his artistic practice from 17:30-18:00 (in English). Everyone is welcome.
Andreas Senoner (b. 1982, Bolzano) is an Italian contemporary artist. He lives and works in Florence, Italy. He has been artist-in-residence at Skaftfell during April, spending a lot of his time drawing – a process of deep visual thinking and searching for new topics and materials.
Andreas’ sculptural research is focused on a series of main themes, including metamorphosis, heritage, and stratification, on a symbolic and material level. For his artworks, he selects and uses unique materials, mostly from animal and plant sources – including wood, feathers, lichens, fabric, beeswax – always keeping in mind their history and process of creation and evolution, while giving value to those factors. The preferred medium is wood, an essential natural element, a collector of memories, a material that allows us to read traces of time – before, during, and after the artistic process.
Andreas recalls the traditional sculptural processes in a contemporary perspective, based on the message he needs to convey, searching a language strictly connected to the concrete nature of the chosen materials and topics narrated. He tries to establish a dialogue and to induce parallels with the memories of the viewer.
