New Furniture Puzzle Sculptures from Michael Johansson

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Swedish artist Michael Johansson creates found object-based sculptures that mix Minimalism with nostalgia. The large-scale cubes evoke the Minimalist sculpture movement of the 1960s, but each block is filled with household items that make one fondly recall one’s parents’ and grandparents’ homes with their mid-20th-century appliances and furnishings. Johansson’s work extends to large-scale installations that take up entire walls and building exteriors, like the one he built for his September 2013 exhibition, “Shades and Variables,” at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom in Stockholm (pictured above) or his installation at the Vigeland Museum in Norway, which we covered last spring. Take a look at Johansson’s latest work from “Shades and Variables” below, images courtesy of Henrik Haven.
