Viggo Wallensköld’s (s. 1969) art depicts the physical diversity and sense of otherness that characterise the human experience. His subjects are a blend of different ages, genders, eras and social classes. Occasionally, they are shown merged with a piece of machinery or joined to a gravestone. Even the most contradictory of human characteristics are invariably treated with understanding, sympathy and dignity.
Wallensköld is also a writer, whose literary output encompasses the life and works of Anatoly D. Mbdrinov, a fictional scientist, whose research has the potential to revolutionise our understanding of fungi and the human mind.
In this publication, Viggo Wallensköld’s longterm collaborator and friend and gallerist at Taidesalonki, Christina Bäcksbacka, writes about her relationship with the artist, while an essay by Sini Mononen explores the themes and fundamental preoccupations of Wallensköld’s oeuvre. The publication is illustrated with Wallensköld’s art works along with photographs from his private album.
