Kim Hankyul and Minna Kangasmaa ´s joint exhibition continues the series of nordiSKulptur exhibitions

Kim Hankyul from Norway and Minna Kangasmaa from Finland have been selected as the artists of the second nordiSKulptur exhibition. The exhibition will take place at Galleria Sculptor in Helsinki in September 2020. NordiSKulptur promotes Nordic contemporary sculpture and is a collaborative project by the Association of Finnish Sculptors and the Nordic Culture Point. Selection for the exhibition in 2020 was made in cooperation with the Association of Norwegian Sculptors, Norsk Billedhoggerforeningen.

Kim Hankyul works mainly with sound installation. In his installations, he uses the kinetic or motored movement of wooden materials as the main source of live sound. By juxtaposing mechanical strength and sonic vulnerability, Hankyul interrogates the routine of violence observed in daily activities. He was born in South Korea, and currently he lives and works in Bergen, Norway. His works have been shown recently at Bergen Kunsthall (2019), Lydgalleriet, Bergen (2019), Bergen Center for Electronic Arts (2019), Doosan Art Center, Seoul (2018), and Unofficial Preview Gallery, Seoul (2017) in the format of exhibition, theatre and live sound performance.

In her art, Minna Kangasmaa studies the current ecological crisis and human´s relationship to the material world. Since 2008 she has worked with a series of work Systema naturae, in which she brings under scrutiny interactions between human, society and nature and their potential to generate both destruction and progress. Kangasmaa was born in Oulu Finland, where she currently lives and works. Kangasmaa´s works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums around Finland and Europe, most recently at the Mänttä Art Festival (2019), Galleria Muu Kaapeli (2019) and at Galleria Vanha Raatihuone (2019) in Finland, and at PARALLEL VIENNA art fair in Austria (2019).

The artists were selected through an open call aimed at the members of the Finnish and Norwegian Sculptor’s Associations. The selection was carried out by a jury, composed of the following members; Simo Ripatti and Andy Best as representatives of the Association of Finnish Sculptors, and Sabina Westerholm as a representative of the Nordic Culture Point.
