The exhibition PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD presents works of contemporary Finnish artists Tatu Engeström & Sakari Tervo, Antti Laitinen, Erka Nissinen and Jaakko Pallasvuo for the first time in Austria. The English term straightforwardness is generally understood as a kind of direct approach to the world. It is this pragmatic perspective – heading directly towards things – which is reflected in the works on display in different ways. Antti Laitinen, who represented Finland at the Venice Biennale in 2013, shows conceptual photography, Tatu Engeström and Sakari Tervo show a collaborative video installation that has been originally conceived for the Sibelius Museum in Turku. Jaakko Pallasvuo and Hong Kong based artist Erkka Nissinen each contribute with a video piece.The exhibition has been curated by David Muth and Kai Maier-Rothe, with an accompanying text by Axel Stockburger. The artist Tatu Engeström and Sakari Tervo are present at the opening event.Kindly supported by Frame Visual Art Finland, special thanks to Vesa Puhakka from AV-ARKKI and Jussi Koitela.
