Do we see the consequences of our actions? Do we care?
Are we living in a dream industry, where nothing really happenes. Life just slides out between commercial breaks.
This reality is a growing tornado of mistakes, our collective blind spot.
Today’s phenomena are reflections from yesterday’s choices and decisions. And the traces go back over centuries. The history of a man is a jumble of courage, cowardice, wisdom, foolishness, mistakes, damages, mistakes, misunderstandings and recklessness.
Anssi Taulu works predominantly in the medium of sculptures, but includes environmental art projects, graphics, drawings, videos and collaborative projects with other artists in his large scale installations. Taulu graduated from Kankaanpää Art School in 1994. His major solo shows have been at Galleria Sculptor in Helsinki, GalleriaKONE in Hämeenlinna and Galerie Toolbox in Berlin, Germany. His environmental art project Wasp Factories were built in numerous places in Finland, Edinburgh and London. His works have been exhibited in Germany, Sweden, Scotland, Norway and Estonia. Taulu have public works in Finland and in Utica NY. He is a member of the Association of Finnish Sculptors and Toolbox cooperative. He lives and works in Hämeenlinna, Finland.
