From the exhibition invitation:

Helsinki Contemporary has the pleasure of ending its Spring season with an exhibition of new paintings by the Danish artist John Kørner between 1 June–8 July. Simultaneously to the gallery show Space Train, Kørner’s installation Tripoli-Lampedusa can be seen at EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art until 29 July 2018.

John Kørner is one of the leading figures on the Danish contemporary art scene. Current political and social questions and especially the notion of the ‘problem’ are central for his work. ‘Problems’ represent the inconvenient and the difficult and they are not just something that happens to us, but something that we have a hand in.
