Michael Wolf lives in Hong Kong and was born Munich. We admire his ability to document and observe the subtleties of life in mega cities. Our current favourite theme of his involves capturing the lost laundry of Hong Kong:
"I'm inspired by everyday scenarios, things you pass by and normally don't pay attention to, but that for some reason stands out this particular time. It can be a parking lot filled with cars in the same colour, or that the pants you are wearing have the exact same shade as the chair you just sat down in. Or basically anything you encounter in your daily life but never really paid attention to before." Michael Johansson in an interview with Dazed Magazine
Utilising a plethora of mundane familiar items including discarded furniture and household goods, Swedish Artist Michael Johansson reimagines the possibilities of the ordinary into extraordinary sculptures that evoke "Tetris" feelings in most of us.
I enjoy identifying the various objects he's incorporated into each of his works and also find it so satisfying how all the elements fit together so neatly. I wonder if all the storage spaces in his home are stacked in this way?
