Espoo Museum of Modern Art
→InCollection is a series of annual commissions and exhibitions produced jointly by Saastamoinen Foundation and EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art.
Through InCollection, Saastamoinen Foundation develops its permanent collection by commissioning an artwork from a visionary artist. The artist creates the work site-specifically for the museum’s architecture and its surroundings.
A curated exhibition will be organized in conjunction with the commission to shed further light on the artist’s current practice.
See below the current and upcoming exhibitions in InCollection. Read more about the collaboration at: www.incollection.fi
Coming in 2023
Pilvi Takala: Close WatchPilvi Takala’s Close Watch takes a critical look at how power is exercised in public spaces through the private security industry. The multi-channel video installation is based on the artist’s experiences during her six-month employment and research while working covertly for the security company Securitas as a fully qualified security guard.
Pierre Huyghe: Abyssal PlainPierre Huyghe’s work Abyssal Plain manifests itself in inventing conditions for diverse entities to coexist, without hierarchical distinction and without defining a specific outcome. The exhibition to be curated will spill outside the walls of the museum, interacting with the surrounding forest grounds.
