After several years of collaboration, Helsinki Contempoary is delighted to announce representation of artist Michael Johansson.

Michael Johansson (b. 1975, Trollhättan, Sweden) deals with ordinary objects we all recognize, but in a way far from the ordinary. Driven by the agenda to densify the world, objects are morphed into precisely stacked rectangular shapes, connected to a certain place, where their original purpose are transformed into catalysts of new meanings. Found objects within the same colour range are reconstructed into a homogeneous image of a fictional life reinforced by our collective imaginary: the compressed scenery from a time gone by.
