STATEMENT
In the exhibition Pure Assness, the visitor is invited to join Mikkel S. Andersen’s compelling and disturbing universe, where innocent everyday objects are arranged in bizarre settings. You meet, for instance, the teddy bear that, after a bad trip, is sitting lonely in its rubber boat, scouting for land, Kaj the doll penetrated by syringes, and a big homage to the six-pack as an aesthetically masterly object (the six-pack being canned beer and not stomach muscles). In his different works you will meet joy of life, misery, humour, sarcasm, playfulness and bitterness. It’s gung-ho, and the exhibition is not for the sensitive souls. Still, at the same time you should notice the depth and ambiguity which is latent in his works. You’ll see buttocks, skulls and beer cans … but there is more to his works than that. The exhibition contains paintings, collages and sculptures in bronze, ceramics and plastics.
