Andersen Woof (b. 1989, China) lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland. Originally trained in landscape architecture (RISD), Andersen is fascinated by the emotional impact of physical spaces. Within his work, Andersen constantly looks for ambiguous and absurd narratives that reflect the complexities of humanity, and he investigates what it means for people to live simultaneously with joy and pain. As an Asian and gay immigrant living in the US, Andersen’s practice is strongly influenced by his personal life experiences as he explores themes of solitude, relationships, fear, violence, and desire. Andersen currently has a group exhibition “The Minotaur’s Daydream” (curated by Anthony Cudahy) with Semiose (Paris, France), and previous exhibitions include 1969 Gallery (New York, NY), Acappella Gallery (Naples, Italy), Fortnight Institute (New York, NY), Mothflower, and more. Andersen is a grant finalist of the Hopper Prize, and his work has been featured in ArtMaze Magazine, Booooooom, and Mepaintsme, among others.
Thank you very much!
