Teemu Lehmusruusu installation at Supermarket art fair 2014
Teemu Lehmusruusu (born 1981, Helsinki, Finland) is a contemporary artist whose primary medium is video. His works explore the nature of human existence using exhibition space as an investigative laboratory – a place where audience can engage with the values and thoughts within the work presented. The works are often polyvalent and have a bare or minimalistic appearance. Themes often include investigations into different spiritual traditions, human addictions, Romanticism and horticultural environments. Lehmusruusu is at the moment finishing his Master of Art degree in Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture Helsinki and preparing his 5th solo show under the title Observatory.
The installation presented in Supermarket Art Fair by 00130Gallery Helsinki is the second part of a series of three video works called The Declaration of Love. The movement improvisation was created in collaboration with the contemporary dancer and choreographer Jennifer Amelie Vogel (born 1985, Stuttgart, Germany). The performance is shot in a closed sanatorium in Beelitz-Heilstätten, Germany. It is a bodily meditation on sufferings and affects, love as impossible, inaccessible and unfulfilled. And still, as the principles of Romanticism state, even despair itself is a manifestation of love and act of love as such.
