Sperling @miart 2022

Andrew Gilbert

In his works on paper and large-scale installations, the Scottish artist Andrew Gilbert (*1980) combines historical facts with fictional situations as well as the visionary with the absurd. The impulse is provided mostly by incidents connected to colonialism, especially that of the British Empire.

Sperling’s booth at miart 2022 is covered in pastel beige wallpaper to create a playful and cozy atmosphere yet like with all of Andrew Gilbert’s work the first sight is deceptive. Historical as well as current figures and events can come together in his unique artistic universe as he depicts the repetition of history and the impact of 19th century imperialism on today.


Italiano:
Nelle sue opere su carta e installazioni, l’artista scozzese Andrew Gilbert (*1980) combina fatti storici con situazioni fittizie, così come il visionario con l’assurdo. L’impulso è fornito soprattutto da episodi legati al colonialismo, particolarmente quello dell’Impero britannico.
Lo stand di Sperling al miart 2022 è coperto di carta da parati giallo-beige per creare un’atmosfera giocosa e accogliente ma, come in tutta l’opera di Andrew Gilbert, il primo colpo d’occhio è ingannevole. Figure ed eventi sia storici che attuali possono confluire nel suo universo artistico volto a ritrarre la ripetizione della storia e l’impatto dell’imperialismo del XIX secolo sull’oggi.
