Mikko Kuorinki LRVS MFA Lecture. 6pm, July 31, in the Mediatheque
The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies welcomes Mikko Kuorinki. Mikko Kuorinki will be speaking about his artwork and research. This lecture is part of the Low- Residency MFA in Visual Studies Summer Intensive Wednesday night lecture series.
Mikko Kuorinki was born in Rovaniemi in 1977. He started his artistic practice when he was 15-years old by releasing zines and music. Nowadays he lives in Helsinki and works mainly in the context of visual art by making installations, publications and happenings out of objects and texts. Materials of the works can be objects, rooms, texts, bits of songs, found and manufactured. Certain idea of documentarism is in the center of Kuorinki's practise: he grabs on to what is at hand because this seemingly meaningless and mundane material unfolds to him as something insolvable. His work was featured in several exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt, Germany), SIC (Helsinki, Finland), and Contemporary Art Centre (Vilnius, Lithuania).
Mikko Kuorinki studied at the Turku Art Academy (2004) and in the University of Arts and Design in Helsinki (2008). Beside his own practice he is part of Ruler and Hello dust artist collectives.
Aeron Bergman, chair of the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies at PNCA, and Alejandra Salinas, PNCA faculty, are interviewed by BOMB Magazine about their recent work.
Curator Laurel V. McLaughlin talks with the artists about their ongoing projects Consuming Nature and Seed as Idea where hybrid media overlap, drawing from Indigenous and Western academic methodologies, sound and image sampling, and the legal and ethical logic of the public domain.
