Hans Kristian Borchgrevink Hansen (b.1985 in Kongsvinger, Norway, lives and works in Bergen, Norway) is a visual artist whose concern is to map specific geographical areas, by making use of materials and discoveries collected from the street. Debris from the pavement and found objects become an image of the city's visual undercurrents and with their indeterminate and abstract forms are reminiscent of diminished modernist sculptures. Borchgrevink Hansen holds an MA from the Bergen National Academy of the Arts (KHiB) and a BA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO).
