press release

Using simple means, Andreas Korsár investigates how a drawing is constructed - a cavalcade of directional motions frozen within a structure, where cinematographic and acoustic qualities for example, can be read between the lines. Even the artist’s short animations, often just seconds long, can primarily be interpreted as drawings, where the movement’s potential is fully exploited. The exhibition "Lite lik dig" (A bit like you) is Andreas Korsár’s first presentation in Stockholm and contains a mix of new work and old, colour and black & white, animation and drawing. Andreas Korsár has previously also worked with music videos and book illustration. The exhibition opening at Index also sees the launch of Andreas Korsár and Jonas Sundvall’s book "Sträcker sig efter telefonen" (Reaching for the Phone), drawings and monologues (2004). Andreas Korsár was educated at Valand School of Fine Art, 1995 – 2000, and lives and works in Gothenburg. Jesper Nordahl’s "Cricket" is a series of investigations concerning cricket, as an indirect expression of political action in a global arena. It is a process-implemented project and Index presents a first instalment: Jesper Nordahl’s interview with Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga, recorded in Maidstone, England, in August 2003. Henry Olonga went into exile after demonstrating against the Zimbabwe regime’s human rights violations, during the Cricket World Cup 2003, hosted in South Africa and Zimbabwe. The exhibition also contains text, photography and drawing. Jesper Nordahl was educated at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm, 1995 – 2000, and lives and works in Stockholm. The film "Cricket" (2003) was made with support from IASPIS. The exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between Index and the Multicultural Centre in Botkyrka.
