JOHANNES NIELSEN | PUNTO SULL’ARTE PRESENTS
Johannes Nielsen, who lives and works in China, creates mild and thready sculptures defined by an aesthetic minimalism, which transmits essentiality and motion. Delicate and light human and animal bodies made by taking inspiration from the trees, exceptional models which reproduce life, arms and legs. This kind of process results into stylized human and animal bodies, perfectly interwoven with nature, which recall atmospheres full of suasion that force us to remember that everything is uniquely and inevitably temporary. The ability of Nielsen is to leave us disoriented, balanced between the sensation of melancholy and optimism. And, if on the one hand, horses appear to us graceful, ready to gallop into the wilderness, his human figures so slender, often gathered in meditation, seem ready to sacrifice.
