Elias Hansen Biography

Elias Hansen’s work involves hand-blown glass objects that convey a regularity not unlike that of a mass-produced process. Hansen’s installations, comprised of an assortment of pipettes, flasks and beakers alongside rough-cut wood, rubber tubing and light bulbs, are interrelated in arrangements that reference the fragility of both the precious and the discarded, the authentic and the reproduced. The precarious composition of his installations is both spatial and formal. Jagged wood elements intrude into the exhibition space, upon which glass objects are uneasily displayed, suggesting impending shatter. This anxiety within Hansen’s work undermines the traditional narrative of sculpture, subverting its high art status as a flux between discarded context and admired form.
