Galleria Sculptor is the only gallery in Finland focusing on presenting different forms of contemporary sculpture, and through its programme, the audience has a unique possibility to explore in specific what contemporary sculpting can be. Our exhibition programme highlights the diversity of contemporary sculpture and we aim to offer new insights into spatial, three-dimensional and object-based practices. The association organizes also events and exhibitions outside the gallery. In the summer of 2019, a major public art exhibition “Sculpture Expanded – moving laboratory of public art” was held in Helsinki. Throughout the summer, the exhibition showcased artworks by 10 artists/artist collectives in 32 changing locations all around the city of Helsinki.
Aaron Heino will present some of his small-scale sculptures made of stainless steel and fibreglass. His works are abstract and seductively beautiful. The aesthetics are reminiscent of industrial design. Tiina Laasonen works with wood and creates forms that are soft and playful. Her themes are happiness and how it is allocated. Emma Rönnholm combines different materials, such as pin needles and buttons. She also makes moving sculptures that make sound. There is an element of unease and pain in her works even though at the first glance they seem harmless, which creates intriguing tension.
