Mikko Kuorinki @ Sorbus-galleria, Jan 15 – 31

14 January 2016

Mikko Kuorinki‘s Skitsystem exhibition is on at Helsinki’s Sorbus gallery, opening January 15 and running to January 31.

The Helsinki-based artist currently runs collaborative platform for programming, exhibiting and publishing, Ruler, with Diego Bruno, which has show at HIAP and SIC gallery and works with the likes of Ola Vasiljeva, Hito Steyerl, Kimmo Modig, Lisa Holzer among many more familiar names.

Taking its title from the Swedish crust punk band, Kuorinki claims no other connection with the Skitsystem exhibition other than that, instead recommending the writing of Robert Creeley, Lisa Robertson, Robert Grenier and Hannah Weiner and other as supplementary reading. The press release also comes with a quote from Japanese Zen Buddhist monk ‘Ikkye’ (see: Ikkyū):

nobody knows shit
nobody lives anywhere
hello dust!

It will open with a reading event at 3pm called ‘Kaikki lukevat…! / Everybody reads…!’ on January 15.

See the FB event page for details.**
