Venice Biennale 2022

Pilvi Takala has been selected to exhibit in the Alvar Aalto Pavilion of Finland at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

Curated by Christina Li, Pilvi Takala’s exhibition will be commissioned and produced by Frame. The 59th edition of the exhibition will be held from 23 April to 27 November, 2022.

Pilvi Takala is a Berlin and Helsinki-based artist working with video and performance. Takala’s approach relies on a slow process starting from a research period. Her video works are based on performative interventions in which she researches specific communities in order to process social structures and question the normative rules and truths of our behaviour in different contexts. Christina Li is a curator and a writer based in Hong Kong and Amsterdam.

Venice Biennale is the first and most important biennial of contemporary art. Every second year, various countries showcase their exhibitions at the Venice Biennale. The exhibitions are spread around the historic center of Venice in different pavilions. Finland is among 29 countries that have their own pavilion in Giardini, historical park of pavilions.
