Henrik Håkansson

September 13 – November 3, 2002

Henrik Håkansson’s works show fragments of cycles of nature that he records or reconstructs in different places—in exhibition contexts. The works focus on the observation of plants, birds, insects or other creatures and their surroundings, and on the question of possible forms of dialogue between human beings and nature. For his observations, Håkansson uses various recording apparatuses—surveillance cameras, high speed films—and visualization media—computer programs for acoustic and motoric analyses, such as those used in scientific experiments and research projects.


Henrik Håkansson, born in Helsingborg in 1968, lives and works in Galtaback and Berlin.
