Bread and Flower
Andersen’s is delighted to announce Farshad Farzankia’s first solo show at Amaliegade 40, entitled Bread and Flower, which presents a corpus of the artist’s new works, ranging from large colourful canvases to ready-mades and sculptures. In the same way that the title of a book can frame the stories it holds, the title of this exhibition Bread & Flower sets a narrative thread that binds the tales staged and recounted by the paintings and sculptures on view. Bread and flowers inspire the conceptual frame for the show: bread is the essential food man can eat to survive, providing the vital nourishment that characterises human nutrition. Whereas flowers are symbols of beauty in nature that nourish men’s souls, fulfilling our longing to be surrounded by aesthetically attractive elements. Bread and flowers are simple but essential sustenance for both the body and the mind. Exploring simple forms and colors, Farzanskia’s artistic research carries this crucial aspect and deals with what is vital in human life: childhood memories, cultural traditions and family.
