A new Paris art space La Plage brings a solo show by artist Ilja Karilampi, titled Truss Mi Daddy and opening on October 21.
The Swedish visual artist (now based in Berlin) makes a practice of exploring popular culture through different media, using what could be construed as underground or at least “local” iconography—like his Spätkauf exhibition in all his works, including video, installation, music and performance.
For Truss Mi Daddy, his first solo show in Paris, Karilampi plays with his personal blend of pop culture and transient expressionism, something Downtown Ilja, his Berlin Community Radio show, has become known for.
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
