Hantrax Dolls is a visual project by Antwerp based composer, performer, and pianist Han Swolfs (1984). Renowned for his live electronic performances and imaginative piano stage productions, his shows are kinetic, atmospheric, hypnotic, and cinematic. A multi-faceted musician who is both enigmatic and kind, Hantrax traverses music categories with whimsical ease from classical to jazz to sharp electronic music.
Dubbed ‘The Illustrious Prince of the Antwerp Underground’, Hantrax creates transformative music championed by connoisseurs and barbarians alike.
For the exhibition opening Hantrax invited artist friends to create a series of ‘dolls’ labeled ‘Hantrax Dolls by …’. These dolls will be on view in the Christmas tree throughout the exhibition.
