Gustav Sparr

A twisted allegory of becoming, self reflection and division. On the t-shirt there is a policeforce logo containing a twin couple and a scalepan. The y-shaped baton is supposed to keep things at a distance but is transformed to a hook that draws inwards. The underlying theme is the interplay of individuals in encounters and groups and how the participants project and absorb forms and norms.

About the artist

Gustav Sparr

Born 1977 in Huddiksvall, grew up in Nynäshamn. Master of Fine Arts degree in Umeå 2007. He is working mainly with an extended vector drawn animation-cycle, as well as graphics, in a kind of illustrative emblem-making, dealing with information and language as well as with identity and self-symbols. Through the use of generative formulas following compositional rules, puzzlelike narratives are constructed. Using snippets of literature and icons from popular culture, Sparr mixes them like a DJ in his animated videos with a critical wit. His work has been shown in many screenings and film festivals across the globe.
