Charles Sandison (born in Scotland in 1969) lives and works in Tampere, Finland. Charles Sandison participated in important international group shows at ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany (2004), Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki (2004), Museum of Art Lucerne, Switzerland (2005), and the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (2006). After his participation in a group exhibition (Special Exhibition Space / Arndt & Partner Berlin) at Arndt & Partner in May 2006, now the gallery presents his work in a solo show called Cryptozoologies. “The Scottish artist Charles Sandison transports viewers into the fascinating and labyrinthine complications of language. Words and symbols dance, float, meet and mingle accross the walls of the darkened gallery and the whole exhibition space.” (Statement by Katja Albers, excerpt). This VernissageTV episode shows excerpts from the works Transcript (2006), Belshazzar’s Feast (2006), Cryptozoology (2006), and The Blind Watch Maker (2005). Charles Sandison: Cryptozoologies, Arndt & Partner Berlin, 16.1.-24.3.2007. Footage: Courtesy Arndt & Partner Berlin / Zurich.
