Tommi Grönlund, Petteri Nisunen
7 – 31 Jan 2016
The universe – and even our closer environment, our small place in the cosmos – is full of forces that attract and repel, make waves, cause things to become attached, and create a shine or something that the human senses perceive as colour, warmth, coldness or even moisture.
We usually regard these things to be self-evident: green is green, water thrown on the stones of a sauna stove evaporates, and one will easily slip on ice.
Grönlund-Nisunen, however, notice and consider things like this, which provide a starting point or fuel for their artistic work.
Grönlund-Nisunen’s works are always pared down, uncluttered and strict and despite that, or precisely because of it, they are fascinating and lyrical: a poem is the shortest way to express a complex and important matter.
