Born in 1971 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Lives and works in Malmö, Sweden.
Alexander Gutke works within the conceptual and minimalist tradition. Analogue apparatuses such as cameras, film and slide projectors are some of the main components in his art practice. Gutke investigates these technical elements as objects and mechanical devices, and uses them as tools and objects in his works and narrative creating a visual illusionism and a poetic and mystical materialism. Through his works, the artist explores a whole host of issues, ranging from narrative self-reflexivity, measurement, space, light, shade, darkness and what can be best described as a metaphysical existentialism.
