Gustaf Lilliestierna (°1992) seeks the foundation for artistic representation in the materiality of his pieces, pieces allowed to be an active participant in a conceptual realism. His art claims that art is only structurally created by culture and that art is only structurally practiced in the opposite to instinct. Lilliestierna wants to activate the objective way of meeting art, pacify the work instead of the resource. That will make the work an allegory for every work, no matter how we interpret them.
Lilliestierna calls it Dark Eco Oriented Art Criticism. A way of challenging Environmentalism, art and its synthesised form, Eco Art. His work is used as a critique aimed towards the imperialistic and denaturing logics of art and the artificial.
Gustaf Lilliestierna works with the chemical construction of materials, sculpture and critical theory.
