Pilvi Takala will Represent Finland at the 2021 Venice Biennale
Artist Pilvi Takala has been selected to exhibit in the Pavilion of Finland at the 59th Venice Biennale in 2021 and her presentation will be curated by Christina Li, with commissioner and producer Frame Contemporary Art Finland.
On the occasion of the announcement the artist stated: “I am thrilled to be making a new work for the Pavilion of Finland in Venice. My practice is slow, requiring a long research process, so I am especially grateful to Frame for approaching me for a proposal well in advance. The fact that I could start researching early on means I don’t have to make any compromises due to lack of time and can be more ambitious about what I’m making”.
“We are very pleased to be working with Pilvi Takala. She is an artist with a very special artistic practice. This exhibition will give her the opportunity to further develop her unique view on the world,” says Frame’s Director and Commissioner of the Pavilion of Finland Raija Koli.
