Johannes Nielsen

Sweden Born in: 1979 Emergent Artist

Johannes Nielsens is a Swedish artist, he was born in 1979 in Falkenberg, Sweden. He graduated in 2003 in Fine Arts from the Lunds Art School. Between 2003 and 2005, he worked as an artistic assistant in Dublin then came back to Sweden, Gotenburg until 2007. He lives and works in Beijing now.

At the age of 8, he realized in bed during his repeated dreams that the perception of his own body could vary. He imagined himself with huge hands or thin needle like legs and sometimes woke up and realized that it was just a dream. This is when he understood the difference between rational objective reality and inner reality, an imagination where the human being seems to evolve constantly.

With the help of his creations, the artist wanted to transform this inner experience of the physical body by using clay and proportions. His black sculptures are not only personal due to the depiction of this inner space, but a visible honest reality.
