The Fine Arts Academy of Finland prize exhibition: Aaron Heino
EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modert Art - Ahertajantie 5
The solo exhibition of sculptor Aaron Heino (b. 1977), recipient of the Fine Arts Academy of Finland Prize in 2019, will be featured at EMMA in summer 2021.
Heino’s dynamic sculptures play on the tension between the masculine and feminine utilizing pop art idiom. In his works, classical materials of sculpture, such as marble and granite are combined with steel, glass fibre and painted aluminium in fascinating encounters. The exhibition featured at EMMA consists primarily of the artist’s new sculptures.
The prize is awarded by The Fine Arts Academy of Finland every second year. The prize consists of EUR 25.000, an exhibition at EMMA and an artist publication. Previous recipients of the prize are Tuomas A. Laitinen, Camilla Vuorenmaa and Outi Pieski.
