Andreas Wargenbrant is primarily known for his sculptural works in bronze and marble. As an autodidact , he has always stood on the side of formal education , and the institutional framework . He works in a postmodernist tradition and explores sculpture’s origin. With clear associations with the wooden horse , he questions one of our most beloved national symbols and stand in wonder before what we perceive as Swedish . Aesthetically , the series ” Holes ” in which Wargenbrant examines the genealogy of the sculpture , which even in our times is often born of modernism formality . Wargenbrant is presenting, throught his objects a kind of meta critique against our historic and geographic beauty values.
