Closing borders

Riiko Sakkinen´s exhibition studies a Europe that is barricading its borders and turning in on itself.

“If you demand that Europe’s borders be closed, you are not following your time. Our borders have already been closed, with concertina wire that tears both flesh and clothes. The Iron Curtain of the Cold War was a toy compared to the present border fences of Europe.” Riiko Sakkinen’s exhibition Closing Borders studies a Europe that is barricading its borders and turning in on itself.

Sakkinen’s words are based on what he himself has seen and experienced. In 2016, together with the curator of the exhibition, Director of Serlachius Museums Pauli Sivonen, he toured Europe's external borders: to the African cities, which belong to Spain, the Greek archipelago, the Balkan routes and, finally, the demolished refugee camps in France.
