The latest exhibition, which is part of the three-year collaborative project between the Association of Finnish Sculptors and Nordic Culture Point, will open in November 2021 at Galleria Sculptor. This curated exhibition series has been realised in co-operation with rotating Nordic partner countries. Next year it will be the turn of Denmark to step into this role.

 

Ida Brockmann was born in 1991 and she lives and works in Copenhagen. She graduated as a Bachelor of Arts from the Valand Academy in Gothenburg. Her art consists of various techniques and materials, including most recently ceramics, stones, and videos. Brockmann is interested in material culture and in those objects that surround us and that we leave behind. Her way of working brings to light the cultural and social layers that are linked to everyday objects and she strives to alter the existing conception of these objects. “What we consider trivial often contains many layers of information about history, social interactions, power, and values.”

 

Anna-Lea Kopperi was born in 1960 and she is renowned internationally for her site-specific works of environmental and community art. She studied visual arts in Finland, France, and Germany, and she graduated from the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf in 1996. Kopperi’s works have been widely featured in Europe and Asia since the 1990s. Kopperi’s site-specific and transient artworks come to life based on the aesthetic, architectural, and ecological premises of a place. In her works, thoughtful material choices and variations of light and motion allow her to examine the concepts of space and place holistically through broader existential issues, such as life and death and themes of time and continuity.

 

The 2021 exhibition project is organised in collaboration with Danish artist and curator Peter Holmgård, who also curates the exchange exhibition in Denmark. A four-member jury which, in addition to Holmgård, included Andy Best and Simo Rapatti, members of the exhibition committee of the Association of Finnish Sculptors, as well as Annika Bergvik-Forsander – an expert at Nordic Culture Point – was responsible for the artist selection at Galleria Sculptor.
