Theo Ågren

Ålgården - Artists' Workshop and Gallery, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Theo Ågren shows sculptures, objects and graphic sheets that all in different ways examine, question and shape the human relationship and relation to their surroundings.

He often works with combining different materials in his works. Painted objects in plaster or jesmonite are mixed with readymades, stones found in nature are put together with objects made by man. New meanings arise in unexpected encounters between everyday objects and the great questions of our time.
