Grey Area

Petteri Nisunen, Tommi Grönlund

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionSolo art productionpeer-review


Tommi Grönlund’s (b. 1967) and Petteri Nisunen’s (b. 1962) exhibition showcases the artist duo’s production from the past two decades. Balancing between art and science, the two artists play with physical phenomena such as gravity, magnetism and light. Sound offers another important dimension to their work.

The retrospective exhibition features key pieces from Grönlund–Nisunen, as well as brand new work. The exhibition also includes many works previously unseen in Finland, such as an installation made for the 2001 Venice Biennale.

Collaborating since the 1990s, the duo has received several acknowledgments for their work both in Finland and abroad, such as the State Art Prize in Finland in 2001, and the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts, granted by the World Cultural Council in 2013. The artists have made several public artworks: the newest will be seen at the Keilaniemi metro station in Espoo.

The exhibition is produced by the Finnish Art Society. The society organises one large-scale exhibition a year at the Kunsthalle.
