What am I thinking when I am thinking of running?
The exhibition of the visual artist Matti Tainio (born 1967) featured the connection between art and sport, in particular running. All works on display were inspired by the collections of the Sports Museum of Finland.
The video work “Finland is running” featured the artist’s heroes: ordinary Finns who practice running. “False memory” presented gilded running shoes in a glass case: whose shoes were they and how did they reproduce a false memory? “Attempt to run” was a series of six pictures depicting the artist’s attempt to run cities onto the map. Also on display were the works “Unfinished thoughts on running” and “Runner’s career (tools of art and sport)”.
