Gardar Eide Einarsson was born in 1976 in Oslo, Norway, and lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. In his work, he critically
explores various forms of social transgression and political subversion arguments by appropriating and recontextualizing imagery from different subcultures. He adopts and endows elements of cultural ephemera with a political charge, attempting to transform various materials into signifiers of dissent. His sources range from book cover graphics, mailorder catalogues, police instruction manuals, everyday objects and institutional architecture. His artistic practice comprises a wide range of media, such as text, installations, and drawing.
