Curator: Satu Oksanen

Emma Jääskeläinen’s artwork Proper Omelette is a sculpture family whose parts spread out through Kiasma’s lobby and the 2nd-floor balcony. The work consists of two stone sculptures, a textile piece, and a bronze sculpture.
The starting point for the sculptures is the human body and the experiences embedded in its memory. Physical tiredness, sweating, and aches are also part of a sculptor’s work Photos: Kansallisgalleria, Petri Virtanen

Head and Shoulders, 2018: group exhibition, Exhibition Laboratory, Helsinki. Artists: Dylan Ray Arnold & Ocèane Bruel, Lasse Juuti & Emma Jääskeläinen, Iiris Kaarlehto & Inka Kynkäänniemi

Works of H&S exhibition in collaboration with Lasse Juuti

Head & Shoulders brings together works from three collaborative practices. The exhibition is an invitation to the shared nature of living and leaving. We are at home, at your place, the waiting room, the port or beyond, saturated with stories, kind of ruins. Couches are common words. We can store our affects in and share the cloud above. While we still have hair, let’s use our hands. Head & Shoulders nourishes, takes care, heals and irritates. Working with each other encourages us to extend our intimacies towards a common ground, through frictions and excitements. A collective vision is a precarious moving composition. In Exhibition Laboratory it becomes space, forms, materials and images.
