Essi Kuokkanen is on view in Turku Art Museum’s newly opened collection exhibition Handle with Care, which explores the museum’s contemporary art collection from the perspective of care and caring. The exhibition brings out how current themes in social discussion and posthumanist thinking, such as environmental relations, interspeciesism, and neospirituality are manifested in visual art, and how art can participate and influence the resolution of the current ecological crisis.
Handle with Care showcases paintings, prints, photographs, moving images, and sculptures by 26 contemporary artists. The exhibition is curated by Selina Kiiskinen, Elli Liippo and Annina Sirén.
