Venice - National Participation

Nordic Countries 2017


13 May 201726 Nov 2017

The Nordic Pavilion (Finland, Sweden and Norway) hosts the group exhibition “Mirrored” featuring works by six artists from different generations: Siri Aurdal, Nina Canell, Charlotte Johannesson, Jumana Manna, Pasi “Sleeping” Myllymäki, and Mika Taanila.

The exhibition curated by Mats Stjernstedt aims at challenging a self-image reflected in, or stereotypes projected on, the Nordic countries. Mirrored thus suggest a “placeless place”, to borrow Guiliana Bruno’s allegory on mirrors.

Each country will present 2 artists.
