Kneading through the collaborative work of Corinna Helenelund & Lukas Q Hoffmann at Titanik, Turku

, 28 November 2018

Corinna Helenelund and Lukas Q Hoffmann presented a collaborative exhibition titled The Dough at Titanik art space in Turku, Finland between October 12 and November 4.

Mixing soft sculpture, video and other media, the exhibition’s playful aesthetic visually evoked the malleability and open-ended material after which the show was named. The duo’s collaboration seemed to lightly nod towards the art-making process itself as being akin to a wider celebration of formlessness. As their playful press release asked in a series of rhetorical pointers: “Do the minerals in our bodies remember their past underground? Are they longing to get out of us? How can I be open to the holes and cracks life is unzipping for me? How’s my form right now, or am I formless? Could art be a continuous act of kneading, a project against projects?”

Corinna Helenelund studied at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts (MFA 2013) and has since been living and working between Porvoo and Berlin. She currently holds a residency at HIAP, Suomenlinna. Lukas Q Hoffmann lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam. He is currently enrolled at the Dutch Art Institute, Roaming. He is also part of the artist collective Samet Yilmaz (formerly known as k.i. beyoncé).”

Corinna Helenelund and Lukas Q Hoffmann, The Dough ran between October 12 and November 4 at Titanik, Turku.
