Olli Keränen’s works often address shared spaces. The focal point of his practice is the dialogue created in gallery spaces, where discussions happen between the artist, viewer and the art works. The physical presence of a viewer is pivotal to Keränen’s works.
Olli Keränen has had solo exhibitions in Copenhagen and Helsinki in addition to group shows in Finland and abroad, including SIC, Helsinki; Galerie Anhava, Helsinki; and Malmö Konsthall. Keränen is the recipient of the William Thuring Prize, 2016, and the Raimo Utriainen Art Foundation Award for Young Sculptor, 2013.ollikeranen.com

Antonia Low’s installations, sculptures and photographs are inspired by infrastructures that underline everyday life, such as work spaces, storage rooms, construction sites and archaeological excavations. When she exposes a room’s wiring or presents medieval walls on semi-transparent fabric, she is only rarely concerned with a critique of that specific site. Instead, her interest is in a spatial reconstruction of how the recollections and after images of spaces become fixed in one’s mind and superimposed on an actual space.
