Corners and edges

Hermanni Saarinen utilizes multiple materials and techniques in his art. His works often develop associative networks, where different works are in a strong interaction with each other.

The body, senses and perception are subjects that Saarinen ponders while he works. Bodily feelings and certain body postures give often an impetus to his work. A work goes through multiple metamorphoses, which can be seen in a resulting form of a work.

Saarinen sees the works as kinds of cognitive loops – pictures that can generate more pictures. He is interested in the flexibility of images and also the ability of pictures to move in between different contexts and registers.

Saarinen has graduated from The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2011.

The exhibition has been supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland and The Finnish Cultural Foundation’s Uusimaa Regional Fund.
