Jussi Niva at Galerie Biesenbach in Cologne

Jussi Niva takes part in Sculptural.Painting. group exhibition at Galerie Biesenbach in Cologne, on view until 6 March 2021. The thematic group exhibition is formed around the work of Niva, the winner of Art Matters Open Call last April, and highlights artistic processes that address a hybridisation of painting and sculpture.

“With a deliberate focus on wall-based works, we present sculptural forms in which the boundaries between painting and sculpture are explored, blurred and suspended. Because these objects, while possessing dimensional qualities, inhabit the wall, a place traditionally occupied by painting, they reference painting yet function beyond it.”
