AANDO FINE ART is pleased to present new works by the Dutch artist ERIK OLOFSEN.

In his second solo exhibition at AANDO FINE ART, ERIK OLOFSEN deals with our perception of reality. By means of deconstruction, his sculptures and installations transform their surroundings and redefine their environment.

In recent years the artist has closely studied the development and implications of digital technology—starting from simple electro-mechanical punched card code to graphical data processing, such as biometric facial recognition or black box trading.

OLOFSEN reveals the consequences of a rapid technological race, in a world where none perceptible algorithms dramatically influence our lives. His works illustrate that the images of our reality have become a rather abstract concept, and that the tangled interweaving of significance and abstraction coincide.

The architectural constructions, which were created through this process, blur the boundaries between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional. The challenge for the artist is therefore to reveal our hidden, but ominipresent virtual world situated behind the real one.

OLOFSEN considers his task as one of illuminating the fine line between both realities, without disenchanting our perception.
