John Christian Anderson: Dancing In The Bardo at the BSG

December 11, 2019 - January 26, 2020

John Christian Anderson’s solo exhibition Dancing In The Bardo contemplates contemporary themes of dislocation and temporality. Combining found material and fabricated forms, Anderson’s recent sculptures utilize hanging, leaning, and stacking to express impermanence and fragility. Cages of welded steel are covered in rice paper, creating a dichotomy between durable and delicate materials. Hands carved from found tree branches allude to the diaspora of humans looking for a safe haven. There are no hierarchies in Anderson’s work. Instead, he presents an amalgam of new materials juxtaposed with deteriorating ones to emphasize the ephemeral and transitory nature of life.
