Almost Human (January 9 – February 14, 2010)
Tobias Bernstrup at Andréhn-Schiptjenko


Andréhn-Schiptjenko is proud to present Tobias Bernstrup's exhibition 'Almost Human' at the gallery.

Tobias Bernstrup is one of Sweden’s most important performance and new media based artists being internationally active for more than a decade.
He has constructed his own unmistakable performance persona in elaborate costumes in glossy latex and heavy make up during these years. Almost Human will be his 2nd solo exhibition at the gallery.

Through re-medialization Bernstrup addresses questions about identity and gender and the blurred border between the virtual and the real. He mixes classicism, gothic noir with video game aesthetics.

In the new exhibition he presents, for the very first time, paintings, costume sketches and sculptural works. One of the central works in the exhibition is a body casting based on his most recent performance project ASFR* presented at the MADRE Museum of Contemporary art in Naples in 2009.

As a performing artist and musician Tobias Bernstrup has released several CD's and vinyl records of his own compositions. The new EP "1984" (on Dutch label Enfant Terrible) will be released during the exhibition.

Over the years Tobias Bernstrup's works has been exhibited in a large number of major institutions, museums and galleries worldwide among these; Palais de Tokyo, Basel Museum Für Gegenwartskunst, Biennale de Lyon, Busan Biennale, Shanghai Duolun MoMA, North Miami MoCA, MASS MoCA, The Kitchen New York and Moderna Museet. Further in April 2010 Tobias will present a solo exhibition at Stenasalen Göteborgs konstmuseum.

*Robot fetishism (also ASFR or techno sexuality) is a fetishist attraction to humanoid or non-humanoid robots; also to people acting like robots or people dressed in robot costumes. A less common fantasy involves transformation into a robot. In these ways it is similar to agalmatophilia which involves attraction to or transformation into statues or mannequins.





Almost Human (9 januari – 14 februari, 2010)
Tobias Bernstrup på Andréhn-Schiptjenko


Andréhn-Schiptjenko är stolta över att presentera Tobias Bernstrups utställning ”Almost Human”.

Tobias Bernstrup är en av Sveriges mest framstående performance- och nya medier-konstnärer och har varit aktiv på den internationella konstscenen i mer än ett decennium. Under dessa år har han skapat sin egen omisskännliga performance-persona med omsorgsfullt skapade kostymer i blank latex och kraftig make up. ”Almost Human” är hans andra separatutställning på galleriet.

Genom re-medialisering tar Bernstrup upp frågor om identitet, genus och den suddiga gränsen mellan det virtuella och det verkliga. Han blandar klassicism och gothic noir med videospelestetik.

I sin nya utställning presenterar han för första gången målningar, kostymskisser och skulpturer. Ett av de centrala verken är en kroppsavgjutning, baserad på hans senaste performanceprojekt ASFR* som presenterades på MADRE Museum of Contemporary art i Neapel 2009.

Som musiker har Tobias Bernstrup givit ut flera CD- och vinylskivor med egen musik. Den nya EP:n “1984” (på det holländska skivbolaget Enfant Terrible) släpps under utställningen.
Tobias Bernstrups verk har visats på ett flertal större institutioner, museer och gallerier över hela världen, bland andra Palais de Tokyo, Basel Museum Für Gegenwartskunst, Biennale de Lyon, Busan Biennale, Shanghai Duolun MoMA, North Miami MoCA, MASS MoCA, The Kitchen New York och Moderna Museet. I april 2010 presenterar Tobias en separatutställning i Stenasalen på Göteborgs Konstmuseum.
