Jan Anderzén: Unia Loimussa
(Dreams Inside a Glow)

Friday 26th - Sunday 28th April
Jan Anderzén Exhibition
ONCA Gallery, 14 St George's Place, BN1 4GB

For COOS (8), ONCA hosted Jan Anderzén’s first UK solo exhibition which focused on his vibrant collage work with textiles.

Jan Anderzén is a Tampere based artist producing experimental music and creating images using a multitude of techniques. He layers plotted and formulated elements with splashes of accident and contingency, focusing on themes that roam the foggy borderlands of the wild and domesticated.

For the past 20 years Anderzén has been at the core of the ever evolving experimental band Kemialliset Ystävät (Chemical Friends). His solo project Tomutonttu (closing the festival on Sunday night) gives voice to a creature who looks after all the dust. Anderzén performs and gives workshops worldwide, his discography is as labyrinthine as his art.

Launch Event | Thursday 25th April, 6 – 8pm ALL WELCOME
