Heini Aho:
Wishful Thinking

Artist page

Wishful Thinking, 2012
size variable

Heini Aho (born 1979) will assemble in the Project Room of Galerie Anhava an installation of window glass and various objects. Viewers are led to view the work from a particular angle, revealing the image reflected from the objects onto the glass. The viewer is surprised by the alternative reality presented by the artwork. The vision, like a glimpse hovering between the immaterial and the real, easily disappears when the viewer moves.

Aho does not use any special effects; all the elements required by the illusion are in view. The technique of realization, the reflection and the objects jointly create an interesting entity in which image and surface are mixed into a three-dimensional installation.

Heini Aho is a graduate of the Turku Art Academy and is currently completing the degree of Master of Arts at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.
