Falling Stone Proves

​Finnish artist Mikko Kuorinki’s art embraces a wide variety of technique: be it film, video, installation or live performance. His main subject is made up from observing the world around us and humanity’s role in it. Often interpreting the correlation between the individual and reality through its lingustic scopes and boundaries. Language has its own limitations when it comes to translating it to a visual level, hence his trials entail the sensation of alienation and rootlessness. Kuorinki’s installations incorporate seemingly insignificant everyday objects with an ever-changing focus point into an advanced new concept that reveals a completely different, new meaning.

TRAPÉZ presents a brand new piece from Mikko Kuorinki’s endlessly expanding Shrines series besides his two site-specific installations. Just a few years ago Mikko took notice of a simple Buddhist shrine in a Nepalese restaurant. This experience led him to create his very own “portable” shrine as an additional but permanent part for each exhibition regardless of location.  These objects, pictures, texts shelved beyond eyesight withdrawn in the distance playing with space are personally bound to Mikko as a great support to go on his endeavours and also to re-astablish his personal presence through each exhibition.
