ABOUT

Born in Norway (1980), Anders Gjennestad’s artistic topic is the kinetic energy of people and the laws of gravity. His impactful works first popped up in the early 2000s.

Referencing his own photographs of people in motion, Gjennestad explores the fragmentation of narratives and frozen moments, complementing them with tactile textures of worn walls and materials, using spray paint and meticulous multi-layer stencils. Gjennestad's theme creates subjects that seem to inhabit an alternative universe, where there are no familiar laws of physics, giving each character a unique ability to interact with space and the viewer.

Anders Gjennestad has exhibited and carried out projects internationally. He lives and works in Berlin.
