Title: “A Greater Miracle of Perception”
Commissioner: Raija Koli, Director Frame Contemporary Art Finland
Curators: Giovanna Esposito Yussif, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Christopher Wessels
Artists: Miracle Workers Collective (Maryan Abdulkarim, Khadar Ahmed, Hassan Blasim, Sonya Lindfors, Outi Pieski, Leena Pukki, Martta Tuomaala, Lorenzo Sandoval, Christopher L. Thomas, Suvi West)
The exhibition features the inaugural project by the Miracle Workers Collective (MWC). The MWC is a transdisciplinary and transnational community of artists, filmmakers, writers, intellectuals, performers, and activists. The exhibition is realised through cinematic collaboration between the members and a site-specific sculptural installation by Finnish-Sámi artist Outi Pieski. In this way the pavilion stands out as a space for encounters and reflection, which challenges the notions of national representation and belonging.
