We are thrilled to invite you to the opening of Maiju Salmenkivi’s solo exhibition ’Buiding Pyramids’ at Helsinki Contemporary on Thursday, September 14 at 5–7pm.
In Maiju Salmenkivi’s paintings, urban city silhouettes blend into nature and geometric gestures are combined with organic forms. The motifs’ scales in the ’Building Pyramids’ exhibition range from tiny cellular level to massive power plants, coal mountaintops, and architectural milestones. Salmenkivi has drawn inspiration from the similarities between the human body and architectural structures, the interweaving of minuscule elements, and the grandeur of pyramids
The exhibition will run through October 22.
