Academy of Fine Arts, Finland

Artist

Anssi Pulkkinen

Anssi Pulkkinen creates sculptural and architectural interventions within interiors and public space. His work is grounded in observations of spaces and the artistic gestures are often delicate operations that distort these observations with humour. Pulkkinen employs materials typically used in construction industry, structural elements and parts of infrastructure. These elements are brought back to a dysfunctional state, a state of becoming of meaning. They disrupt the system of here and now, to rupture viewer’s organization of space and time.

Anssi Pulkkinen has exhibited work at The ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark; The Helsinki Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, both Finland, among others.
