Galleria Sculptor, Eteläranta 12, Helsinki

Konstverk av Kimmo Schroderus och Mattias Nordéus

The final exhibition of the four-year long nordiSKulptur exhibition collaboration organized between the Association of Finnish Sculptors and the Nordic Culture Point brings together works by Mattias Nordéus (SWE) and Kimmo Schroderus (FI).

Welcome to the exhibition opening on Thursday 24 November from 5–7 pm in the presence of the artists!

Mattias Nordéus (b. 1978) holds an MFA from the Malmö Art Academy. He is a visual artist best known for his angled, wooden figures that blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture. Nordéus designs the figures in pine wood which are then painted with acrylic and oil.

Nordéus sculptures are detailed portraits of stylized human figures performing different character roles and postures. The characters expressions are inspired partly by the obviously polygonal designs found in early video game animation, partly by canonical formats and grips found in Western art history, and partly by the limitations and possibilities of painting. Common in Nordéus figure world is the human search for refuge via rapid stimuli such as games and intoxication. References to war games and real combat occur in the form of recurring soldiers in miniature format, sometimes depicted as protectors while at other times they resemble vulnerable children in need of comfort.

Kimmo Schroderus (b. 1970) is an accomplished Finnish sculptor. He graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 1998. Schroderus has had numerous private exhibitions both in Finland and internationally, and he has also conducted many public art works. In 2004 he was awarded the Ars Fennica Award.

In his works, Schroderus emphasizes the artisan attitude towards art making, affection for materials and interest in insightful spatial solutions between the works and the space. In the subjects of his latest sculptures, one can find influences e.g. from science fiction, horror films, and from the gargoyles, which are familiar from the walls of Gothic buildings. The figures in Schroderus´s sculptures are combinations of humans and animals, and possibly shaped by some strange chains of events.

NordiSKulptur is a curated exhibition series that has been realised between 2019–2022 in co-operation with rotating Nordic partner countries. In 2022 the partner country is Sweden, and in relation to the exhibition at Galleria Sculptor, nordiSKulptur exhibition will be held at Linnköpings Konsthall Passagen in 2023.
