The Aalto Natives

Giardini, Giardini - Castello

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.
