Miika Nyyssönen Art High School, 1999, Helsinki Kunsthalle Studio, Finland


This installation I made in Helsinki Kunsthalle’s small studio combines material I’ ve made or lived with when I was about 12 years old to the art I make today.It introduces pictures of imaginary bus company, lists of the participants of imaginary sports contests, Heavy Rock album covers and signs, cardboard sculptures, butter, peanuts, maps of imaginary states, rubber carpet, photographs of water puddles, chevril sculptures, clay, plastic, plexiglas, superlon castle, jogging shoes from early eighties, etc.The work searches for similarities in things I’ ve done before knowing nothing about contemporary art and work that I’ ve done as professional artist. It reflects the same person in two different times and states of consciousness.(1999)
