Closed: Doug Aitken – I Only Have Eyes for You

Mannerheiminaukio 2, 00100 Helsinki
Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma

Doug Aitken’s hypnotic works invite you to immerse yourself in the world of sound and image.

Doug Aitken’s first solo exhibition in Finland includes a selection of works which illustrate the wide range of the artist’s practice, including large-scale video installation and sculpture created over the past decade.

The effect of technology on the individual and society, the accelerating mobility of information and people, and the means of coping in our rapidly changing world are subjects Aitken considers in his work.

Kiasma’s fifth floor gives center stage to Song 1. This large-scale video installation is presented on a 360-degree double-sided screen which visitors can wander in and around. The work takes as its structural starting point the popular song I only have eyes for you, written and first recorded in 1934.

Doug Aitken is widely known for his innovative installations in which time, space and memory are fluid concepts. He has exhibited internationally since the 1990s, and has been the recipient of several prestigious prizes for his work.
