18.12.2018

 

Pia Männikkö from Finland and Páll Haukur from Iceland have been chosen for the first nordiSKulptur exhibition. Männikkö and Páll Haukur’s joint exhibition will take place at Gallery Sculptor in Helsinki in November 2019 as the first of three nordiSKulptur exhibitions. NordiSKulptur is a collaboration between The Nordic Culture Point and The Association of Finnish Sculptors. The exhibitions will be executed with changing Nordic partners, starting with The Icelandic Sculptor’s Association in 2019.

Body, space and their interaction is the point of departure in Männikkö’s art. Männikkö has graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2014 and before that from Glasgow School of Art in 2010. Her latest solo shows have taken place at Galleria Muu Kaapeli, Galleria Uusi Kipinä and Galleria Lapinlahti in Finland. Additionally, Männikkö’s works have been exhibited in several international group shows, and her works have been acquired for various collections, including Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and the Collection of Finnish State Art Commission.

In his art, Páll Haukur examines and deconstructs the concept of an object. He uses a variety of mediums and materials, such as still and moving image, natural materials and ready-made objects. He has graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in 2013 and Icelandic University of the Arts in 2008. His works have been seen recently at solo shows at gallery Kling og Bang and Reykjavík Art Museum as well as at group show at Reykjavik Arts Festival. In addition to his artistic work, Páll Haukur also holds the position of Adjunct Professor at the Icelandic University of the Arts.

The artists were selected through an open call aimed at the members of the Finnish and Icelandic Sculptor’s Associations. The selections were carried out by a jury which consisted of Sampo Malin and Simo Ripatti, member artists of the Finnish Sculptor’s Association, and Annukka Vähäsöyrinki, visual art consultant of The Nordic Culture Point.

Member of the Association of Finnish Sculptors, Anssi Pulkkinen, has been selected through an open call for the Icelandic Sculptor’s Association’s SUBURB exhibition. The exhibition will open in May 2019 and spread across the Reykjavik city area. Along with Pulkkinen, there are eight Icelandic artists participating in the exhibition, selected by curators Aðalheiður Valgeirsdóttir and Aldís Arnardóttir.
