Southern Finland, Helsinki, 03/29/2019 - 09/08/2019
The exhibition by Polish artist Paweł Althamer (b. 1967) will showcase his diverse and often surprising output from more than three decades. HAM will also produce a new kind of work by Althamer that is based on workshop participation. The important thing for Althamer is not the end-result but a sense of playfulness shared with the audience.
The show will present a comprehensive survey of Althamer’s output: sculptures, installations, community art documentation and miniature worlds. The works in the show also include a playground slide that the artist originally made with children for a church in Germany. At HAM the audience will be free to try the slide for themselves. The other half of the exhibition will consist of a new piece that will be created with the audience. It is based on the Althamer’s method of ‘directing reality’ and his desire to connect to other people and to one’s inner self.
