Alien Desire

Solo exhibition

Gallery Huuto

24.4.-19.5.2024

 

Alien Desire explores the experience of alienation in the desire-filled era and also desires in an alienated body. How desires are clingy, numbing and sticky, but also inviting, stimulating, and polishing. A desire imposed through normative environments can drive an individual further away from oneself. On the other hand, a curious desire can act as a driving force for change towards finding oneself and one’s community.

The exhibition has been supported

by the Kone Foundation and Finnish Art Society.
