Olli Keränen (b. 1979) works mainly with sculpture and moving images, composing his works into spatial installations. He explores the necessity of manual work in relation to advanced production processes by working with materials with an unbalanced character. Drawing inspiration from archetypal shapes, Keränen’s works provoke dialogue in which the original references become secondary.
Keränen has held solo exhibitions in Helsinki and Copenhagen, the latest taking place at SIC Gallery in Helsinki in 2021. In addition, he has participated in group exhibitions in HAM, Malmö Konsthall, Karst (Plymouth), Spike Island (Bristol) and Marsèlleria (New York), and elsewhere.
