Description

Roland Persson’s solo exhibition brutal tenderness fills Helsinki Contemporary in June with an uncanny version of reality. 

In his new works, Persson delves deep into the structures of the human-built world, and the ways of experiencing it, existing in it.


Roland Persson is known for his silicone sculptures contemplating the relationship
between human and nature, the way we perceive nature and implement a variety of loaded meanings to it. In his new exhibition, the Swedish artist tackles a different set of starting points – different, but in a natural continuation to the themes he has studied in his past exhibitions at the gallery.


The exhibition consists of three installations, each of which creates its own microcosm inside the gallery space. The installations are made up of smaller pieces, creating bigger wholes loaded with possible histories, shared and personal.
