Henrik B. Andersen | The Morphogenesis of Mass

Henrik B. Andersen in his exhibition "The Morphogenesis of Mass" will present most recent practices which consist of the artworks, specifically created for the gallery VARTAI. Andersen will represent a series of new sculptures, drawings and photographs that are inspired by the research in nonlinear dynamics of biological systems and the modern understanding of space in physics. Andersen's works can be described as a completely new hybrid phenomenon, in which domains such as synthetics, simulation,  and organic forms and their traces merge to become artificial and natural hybrids, evolving and changing in their field.
