Factory 2: Renata Schirm / Myriad

Renata Schirm《MYRIAD》
Gallery Factory2, Seoul
16.12.22–7.1.23
curated by Lokal + factory2

This project is a sequel to <Coming Home to Seoul>, a collaborative exhibition with Lokal Helsinki in 2021 where Renata Jakowleff Schirm participated with three small artworks.

The works Renata presents in her first solo exhibition in Korea are based on the composing techniques she has used in recent years, with which she has found ways to create objects that focus purely on the material and its essence: its texture, its color, and its relation to light. She uses repetition and volume to search for the material true essence and presence.

As the artist has sought to find the exact shape of the reflection and render it into a form of glass object, this exhibition plans to focus on the dynamics and relationships of Seoul’s December light and the reflections of Renata’s glass artworks serendipitously rendered in the space.

Specially commissioned by Institut finlandais, Melissa Sammalvaara’s artwork Tuohi returns to be exhibited on the wall of Café Maa. The exhibition is complemented by a permanent collection showcasing craftsmanship that honors nature across generations designed for the Lokal Kollection in Helsinki by the following artists: Eija Koski, Saija Halko, Nathalie Lautenbacher, Renata Schirm, Yoshimasa Yamada, Alpo Ahokas and Tuohimuori.

Through this new curatorial proposal, Institut finlandais also wishes to slow down its exhibition cycle and inaugurate a new, more organic, flexible, and sustainable way of developing the program.

Listening to the Forest that Grows was inspired by the wish to share Finnish contemporary art and craftsmanship in France, and to support, in a more permanent way, the designers and creators working in Finland. The exhibition takes place in Institut finlandais’s unique space originally designed by Juhani Pallasmaa, entirely renovated by Pekka Littow’s Littow Architects, and decorated by Studio Joanna Laajisto in 2017-2018.

Listening to the Forest that Grows – Season II presents the following 14 artists:

Arni Aromaa
Bo Haglund
Saija Halko
Antrei Hartikainen
Renata Schirm
Leena Keränen
Hanna-Kaisa Korolainen
Eija Koski
Leena Kouhia
Linda Laitinen
Nathalie Lautenbacher
Melissa Sammalvaara
Sini Villi
Yoshimasa Yamada
