About Martin Erik Andersen
Martin Erik Andersen was born in 1964. He currently lives and works in Copenhagen (Denmark).
Martin Erik Andersen works with sculpture and installation, but constantly tries to renew the tradition of these two media. And so, Martin Erik Andersen does not distinguish sharply between sculpture and installation – he establishes active transitions between the two. What Martin Erik Andersen focuses on in his art is the relationship between the work, the space and the viewer of the work. The works also often consist of many different elements and materials that you do not usually expect put together. The works are thus served by some surprising aesthetic codes. Martin Erik Andersen will not tell stories in the common sense with his art. Instead, he will create leaps in materials and in meanings that open up to ‘spaces’ where the world is fundamentally different.
Martin Erik Andersen is represented by Galleri Susanne Ottesen.
