Young Artist of the Year 2022 - Emma Jskelinen

Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art, Vaasa

  • 1.10.2022–29.1.2023

At Her Fingertips

 

Sculptor Emma Jskelinen (b. 1988) is the 38th recipient of this nationally notable art award. She is known for her massively monumental stone sculptures that the artist makes out of classical types of stone such as granite, marble and travertine, updating the materials into the language of contemporary art. The artist avoids excessive seriousness through the use of surprising choices of material. A pocket-sized monumental sculpture illustrates well how Jskelinen plays with greatly varying scale: palm-fitting, huggable and impossible, as the artist herself describes it. Other opposites, such as hard and soft, are also present in the artists works which can also be seen as portraits in the broader sense of the term.

Corporeality is a key contentual starting point in Emma Jskelinens art. Masses are treated in a physical manner where the dialogue between the artist and the material gains a tangible form without losing its sensitivity. Grooves, marks, shadows and the weight of mass also become visible in multi-material works. Finnsheep wool, glass, a ring, a chili pod, fake fur, hair and a baseball cap are amongst the materials used by the artist. The sense of taste also becomes part of the expression through things like the use of bubble gum.

The exhibition is produced by Tampere Art Museum.
