Grönlund-Nisunen at Shangai Minsheng Art Museum

Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum will host an extensive retrospective exhibition Flow with Matter of works by Grönlund-Nisunen. Along with the earlier production of the artist duo, the exhibition will also include new artworks. The internationally acknowledged artists Tommi Grönlund (b. 1967) and  Petteri Nisunen (b. 1962) have showcased their works in numerous private and group exhibitions both in Finland and abroad.

With their backgrounds in architecture, Grönlund-Nisunen’s art addresses issues of space and physical phenomena, such as gravity, magnetism or the movement of light, through the sophisticated installations. Using technology, sound and light as the primary material, their precisely constructed artworks crystallise and encapsulate these phenomena we tend to regard as self-evident.

Flow with Matter will open in May/June 2020. The exhibition is curated by Ma Nan.

Time Is No Longer Round – an illustrated publication on Santeri Tuori’s photography

Hatje Cantz has published a new illustrated art book on Santeri Tuori’s photography. The publication is titled Time Is No Longer Round, including texts by Timothy Persons, Alistair Hicks and Birta Gudjonsdottir.

Santeri Tuori’s (b. 1970) compositions of trees and clouds are fascinating photography montages made up of several layers of images. The result is nearly abstract, complex images of nature. The eye is no longer guided toward a vanishing point around which the image is organised – instead, viewers enjoy a wealth of new perspectives.
