Mikko Kuorinki: Peanut.
Mikko Kuorinki: Peanut.

How does an old espresso cup change it’s nature when it’s suddenly brought from kitchen to an art gallery? How do ear plugs look like in an exhibition space? What happens to peanuts?

Mikko Kuorinki‘s exhibition Somebody said she’s afraid of triangles I can understand that, opening September 5 in The Hague, Netherlands, examines how objects from everyday life change their nature when brought into a new environment. The exhibition consists of unrelated objects and text pieces which together form a new scene to a new story. By giving new meanings to banal objects, the exhibition documents and challenges the reality we live in.

The exhibition is displayed in project-space 1646 that is intended for experimental contemporary art practices and ideas. The exhibition has been supported by Frame Visual Art Finland.

Mikko Kuorinki’s exhibition Somebody said she’s afraid of triangles I can understand that is open to public from Sep 7 till Oct 5 in gallery 1646 in The Hague, Netherlands.
