The exhibition’s title, Hitom (antonym of beyond) alludes to a theoretical return from the transcendental to the chaos of the physical world. Echoed throughout the exhibition is an idea of perceptual arrangement. Through different mediums and methods, Kallioinen manipulates shape and colour (with a particular focus on “the line” as malleable and conditional) to create physical manifestations of concepts otherwise perhaps more sensed than seen. Owing to the artist’s background in installation art, the interplay between the separate parts and their relation to the whole is emphasized on all levels.
Matti Kallioinen (b.1974, Uppsala) is a Swedish multidisciplinary artist. His practice has largely emphasized performance, music and installations. Kallioinen has participated in numerous exhibitions in Sweden and internationally as well as executed a number of public art installations. He received his education at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts & Design.
