Antti-Ville Reinikainen: Mountebank

Antti-Ville Reinikainen: Mountebank

Antti-Ville Reinikainen (b. 1980) works mainly with spatial, mixed-media installations and paintings. His present thematic concerns evolve around the phenomena related to human consciousness, suggestion and memory. Reinikainen’s approach, far from scientific rigour, relies on emotional impressions and intuitive visions. To transmit these emotional states to the viewer and yet to oblige him/her to question and reflect upon them, is a main concern in Reinikainen’s work. This could be achieved by means of humour, the absurd, or through combinations of contradictory fragments. Surprising details, such as dead forest animals, may either offer a hilarious surprise or yet another source of distress.
