b.1987, Denmark, works in London. Blue Cross, 2020. Malfunctioned and anodised solar cells in welded steel frame. 200 x 200 cm. Cell 5, 2020. Malfunctioned and anodised solar cells in welded steel frame. 200 x 200 cm.
Formally anodised solar cells that have been stripped of their circuits and electric wiring comprise the surface of Untitled_CellF1. Departing from its functional nature, the material now acts as a work of art that is independent from its former purpose. The electric blue grid constructed by Kristian actively questions the increasingly complicated relationship between art and artefact. In his larger practice, the artist explores the potential of industrial debris as ambivalent artefacts of human history in a time of rapid technological change. Representation, information, memory, origin, and identity are increasingly commodified and interchanged, and the artist is striving to raise attention to assess the deeper link between human and machine thinking around design, efficiency, and spatial administration.
