Näyttely #59 – Aleksi Martikainen

17.5.–9.6.2019
Syysretkellä yhdessä hänen kanssaan -näyttely sisältää kineettisiä veistoksia, valokuvia ja videoteoksen.

“I look for sensitivity and courage to tell, the acceptance of myself. Where is that freshness and lightness, where is it in me, knowing it is in there?”

Exhibition  “An Autumn Hike With Her” by Aleksi Martikainen combines traditional graphic, photograph and sculptures with movement and performativity. The movement of the works present subtle performances from nature and between people. The video piece “Katseilta piilossa” (Out of sight) shyly shows a situation that would have been too intimate for a live audience. The exhibition is minimalist and airy, but the repetition that is familiar from everyday life makes one smile.

Aleksi Martikainenhas a background in art graphics, and his methods have evolved to include kinetic sculptures and bodily movement. He is intrigued by nature and our relationship with it. Our experience of constructed nature in an urban setting or as an artwork is ultimately very different from immediate interaction with actual wildlife.

Aleksi Martikainen (b. 1984) lives and works in Helsinki. The exhibition includes kinetic sculptures, photographs, graphic and a video piece.
