Two artists from the Dream’n Wild exhibition at ALASKA Projects, Alexander Jackson Wyatt (curator) and Minda Andrén (artist) will talk together about their work as artists, exhibitions makers, collaborators and maintaining a practice abroad.
Minda Andrén (born in 1990 in Sweden) lives and works in Vienna and studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts with Daniel Richter. Referencing pop culture and subculture, her works revolve around balancing and binding contradicting elements that remain dependent on each other, such as destruction and reconstruction or surface and materiality. Her work encompasses painting, video, and installation. Andrén has exhibited consistently in Austria, Germany and Sweden.
Alexander Jackson Wyatt (born Sydney, Australia 1989) lives and works between Sydney & Vienna. His work uses text, installation and spatial intervention to explore notions of discrepancy and the occupation of space. Jackson Wyatt employs varying strategies and methodologies stemming from writing and sculpture. He studied at the National Art School in Sydney, Australia (2010) before studying with Armin Linke and Michael Clegg (Clegg & Guttmann) at the HfG/ZKM in Karlsruhe (2012). He studied with Heimo Zobernig at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna from 2014-2017 and has exhibited throughout Australia and internationally.
