Andrew Krasnow is an acclaimed conceptual artist whose works have been described as both âpowerful' and âthought-provoking.'
Since 1988, Krasnow has frequently incorporated legally-sourced human tissue into his mixed-media installations. While such works have frequently been the subject of controversy, it has never been the artist's intention to scandalise or sensationalise. Instead Krasnow has used the power of his medium to draw attention to what he considers important social and political issues: the dangers of extreme nationalism, the horrors of war and man's continued inhumanity towards man.
Krasnow believes that it is only through his use of human tissue that he can convey that this sense of suffering, pain and loss is universal. Drawing on the tragedy of his own life and that of the world around him, Krasnow illustrates both the fragility and dignity of all human life. Though often overlooked, this is the strong spiritual message that underscores all of Krasnow's works; one that is not confined to any single belief system. It is a message that speaks to the humanity in all of us.
GV Art is proud to present the European debut of Andrew Krasnow's Of the Flesh.
