We are delighted to announce the launch of our publication:
Of Place and Presence: Nine Contemporary Artists from Finland
The book offers a glimpse into the works of some of the youngest, but also some of the most established, contemporary artists in Finland today, this elegant and insightful volume also characterizes the diversity of their practice; including sound, installation, performance, painting, sculpture and photography.
The nine artists are: Malin Ahlsved, Axel Antas, Maria (Mi) Duncker, Saara Ekström, Lotta Ingman, Marjo Levlin, Nina Roos, Hans Rosenström, and Kim Simonsson.
Of Place and Presence: Nine Contemporary Artists from Finland was created by author Claire Gould, a British-born Curator at Helsinki Art Museum, together with graphic designer Petri Summanen. It includes statements by Peter Michael Hornung, editor and art critic at Politiken and Markku Valkonen, writer and curator. The volume has been published as a limited edition by The Finnish Cultural Institute in Denmark.
