Hans Isaksson

Hans Isaksson's production is based on a multitude of methods, his utmost interest being sculpture. In other medias he has also worked with aesthetics of text in series which consist of photographs of film end notes. A common denominator for his work is its strong conceptuality that always makes the viewer to question what actually is the nature of the presented object. His fondness for creating illusions becomes apparent for example in his fruit sculptures in real scale. Because of their skilled handcraft these sculptures appear very real, but when one intends to lift up one of his banana peels from the floor it becomes obvious from the weight of the lead sculpture that one has been lured. Despite of the mysterious elegance of the piece, it cannot totally escape the association to everyday, to fruit that is to be eaten and consumed. What you see and what you make of it becomes a matter of perspective.
