Both nascent sculptors created these works in dialogue with the more experienced Houseago. The British artist has been practicing for nearly three decades and exhibited work at the Whitney Biennale in 2010.

In Tampere, Hosago, who is known as a sculptor, exhibits a number of paintings, a medium he has begun to experiment with in recent years. The works come from the large-scale “visions” series that were produced outdoors and drew inspiration from European icons including the Norwegian Edvard Munch. It also displays new redwood and stucco sculptures he made in response to work in the Sarah Helden Foundation’s collection, such as Alberto Giacometti’s “Woman on a Chariot” from 1943 to 1962.

Speaking about his decision to make a collaborative show between himself, Kev and Pete, Hosiego said in a press release, “I’m not me. I’m who we are!”
