Art Exhibition: Pilvi Takala

Posted on Updated on

Sunday 29th, 12noon-5pm, “Brookville,” Holmpatrick – free

Following last year’s very successful exhibition of performance work by artist Sarah Hurl, independent curator Cleo Fagan has decided again to use her home as an exhibition space for the work of a selected artist. This year she has chosen to exhibit video based work by internationally critically acclaimed Finnish artist Pilvi Takala.

Takala Trainee

The Trainee depicts the artist’s activities under an assumed identity as a marketing intern in large accounting company Deloitte. During the month long intervention the artist behaved in an unorthodox manner that, though rational, inoffensive and non-threatening, considerably unsettled the office environment. As curator and writer Anna Gritz says ‘It’s a technique that prompts us to reevaluate the invisible rules, value systems, and codes of conduct for their practicability and significance, actions that lay a seed for subversive thoughts that may only unravel over time.’

The Trainee was produced in collaboration with Deloitte and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki. Pilvi Takala is based in Istanbul and Helsinki.

This captivating and often humorous work will be exhibited between 12 noon and 5 pm on Sunday, 29 September at Brookville, 22 Holmpatrick, Skerries (opposite the Malting House). All welcome!
