Elina Autio at Galerie Anhava at Art Cologne 2015

Galerie Anhava participates in Art Cologne 2015 with the artists Anne-Karin Furunes, Anne Koskinen, Matti Kujasalo, Pe Lang, Marika Mäkelä and Jorma Puranen. Elina Autio’s large-scale installation Pipework will be exhibited at the fair for the first time as part of the ‘New Positions’-programme focusing on young innovative artists.

Elina Autio was born in 1985 in Finland. She has graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2014. Her installation Pipework at Art Cologne 2015 consists of tubing running along the walls of the space. It applies the standard sizes of pipes and tubes familiar from buildings and follows the orderliness of installed tubing. The artist employs a feature similar from buildings as an element of linear composition. In the installation, paintings are first curved into rolls that become tubes.
