Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Potentiality for Love Serlachius Museum Gösta

Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s new hybrid piece in three parts, Potentiality for Love, combines sculpture and with moving image technology.

Her new work deals with the potential for empathy and love towards other living beings. The three parts each have a different approach on the theme. Potentiality for Love turns attention to those human emotions that could serve as a foundation for dismantling the hierarchical structures between living things, thereby engendering a turn towards non-humans and the recognition of others. The work reflects the origins of these emotions, how we define them and how we conceive of their function as part of a larger continuum of living beings.

Following its premiere in Mänttä, Potentiality for Love will embark on an extensive world tour, including a show at the Biennale of Sydney in March 2018 and at Galerie Marian Goodman Paris.
