FRANCE, 1973 – SWEDEN, 1980
Christian Gfeller and Anna Hellsgård
The artist duo Gfeller + Hellsgård rethinks, deconstructs, reconstructs and stretches the limits of the screen-printing process through their diverse experimentations. Working incessantly across a wide range of media including artist’s books, monoprints, installations and paintings, their fresh combination of punk minimalism, pop abstraction, hand crab hybrid experiments and subtle Duchampian humour, Gfeller + Hellsgård are a very unique voice in the contemporary art scene.
« We want to go to the essence of the process, push the boundaries of the medium, be radical. We were looking for a way to transcend the rigidity of the technique. So we had to rethink and simplify, to finally get the form and content in adequacy ».
