Venice - National Participation

Finland 2017

Giardini

13 May 201726 Nov 2017

Erkka Nissinen and Nathaniel Mellors present “The Aalto Natives” curated by Xander Karskens.

The exhibition breaks the Pavilion’s walls to generate an immersive environment through a multimedia installation that brings together sculptural elements, animatronics and video synchronised in a dynamic choreography of dialogue and image. The exhibition focuses on various clichés surrounding Finnish history and national identity taking cues from archaeology, anthropology and science fiction; Finnish society is reimagined through the eyes of a pair of outsider figures, represented by talking animatronic puppets in dialogue.
