Kristin Wiking Tarantino Throws


Tarantino Throws is a play with a few plastic figures from a desk drawer. All dressed with a blank expression on their faces. Collected a long time ago.

The prerequisite for everything is that the figure Tarantino always carries a sack. As if it was something special. The sack carries a natural lack of logic. Everything else carries the utopia of practicing humor where you don’t really know what you’re laughing at.

The events serve only as a pretext to discover the idiosyncrasies of the story’s main characters. They celebrate their own absurdity, accept their own lives – while reflecting ours. The atmosphere is colored by banal voices, the unspoken and by abrupt pauses.

They are dead figures who are, in a way, immortal. They may even outlive us. Everything that dies has once had a sort of aim. This is not the case of Tarantino and the gang.

Tarantino Throws is accompanied by a large blue Screw Box.

The exhibition is supported by the Arts Promotion Center Finland and Föreningen Konstsamfundet.

Kristin Wiking (b. 1987, Sweden) lives and works in Helsinki and has an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki (2016). Wiking’s artistic practice encompasses a range of media, such as kinetic sculpture, video, and installation. Her working method is very similar to Tarantino’s; persistent, repetitive, corky, searching. Wiking has previously exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Finland, Sweden, and Germany.
