Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Iiu Susiraja” is on view at Kadel Willborn in Düsseldorf, Germany, through Saturday, April 27. The solo exhibition presents recent photographs and a video projection by the Turku, Finland–based artist.

The artist’s statement accompanying the show:

I may feel that a certain object is funny, or violent, but I never think about a specific message I want to convey. I do understand that people find political and social, especially feminist meanings in my work, but I don’t build those associations in to my work intentionally. I make images, my job is not to articulate them verbally.
