In their exhibition in Gallery Å, sculptors Noora and Kimmo Schroderus are showing a selection of their art works made during 2015-2016. In their last exhibition in Turku during summer 2012 they exhibited a massive sculpture “The World” in Turku Art Museum. “The World” was made in co-operation but this time all the art works are smaller and independently made. While the themes and methods have changed, the interest for big amount of details and the love for handcraft has remained strong.

Kimmo Schroderus (born 1970)
The new sculptures of sculptor Kimmo Schroderus connect the alluringly shiny luxury, the bling-bling, overabundance and shallow well-being with insults, anger and rage. The material of the sculptures is the attractive and glossy stainless steel; the form speaks of rich and delicate shapes of rococo. The many details in the artwork are implemented by using bent cursive texts in multiple languages, the content pure insults and words of anger. Kimmo Schroderus is a well-known and recognized sculptor, who received the Ars Fennica award in 2004.

Noora Schroderus (born 1982)
Noora Schroderus bases her art pieces on ordinary settings, which will develop through perseverant work into interpretations that are more absurd. She seeks inspiration in all the small details of human life. Recently she has used bank notes with pictures of people on them as her material. Bank notes are transformed and combined by embroidering a new hairdo for the persons out of thin cotton threads. Like the bank notes themselves, the people on them represent power in some form or another, and by embroidering a new picture is born that dethrones and ridicules power.
