HENNING HAMILTON / monkey see, monkey do

07 May - 11 Jun 2017

Henning Hamilton
Europeana (32), 2017
There is a particular dualism in Henning Hamiltons Europeana sculptures: on one hand they have their mysterious history, thanks to the different components, which have found their way to the tiny Swedish island Kalvö. But on the other hand, they’re timeless, majestic and, most of all, a whole. Hamiltons sense of materiality and colour gives the works this typical character, with humour and subtlety he shapes them into incomplete complete unities.
Resurrected from their watery graves and more alive than ever, they drift ashore for a second time, thousand kilometres further, this time with style.
