Henrik Håkansson

Henrik Håkansson is a naturalist who has repositioned his fascination with nature into the art world, over time becoming an accomplished amateur expert. Focusing on the minutiae of nature, but often presented on grand scale through sound, light, and video installations, his projects combine the interests of a biologist, an ethnologist and an artist, recalling the nineteenth-century explorers who documented the natural and cultural riches of then little known lands and unknown environments.

Håkansson was born in Helsingborg, Sweden; he lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Falkenberg, Sweden.
