Vesa-Pekka Rannikko’s new works see him return to figurative expression and characters that were last seen from him a decade ago.

"Lions Eat Grass" is an exhibition about escapism, concrete fantasies, identities, and artificial paradises, which are presented to us through plaster sculptures and animated drawings. The exhibition provides an investigation into a person construing the world while assuming a multitude of different roles in it.

In the exhibition, identities and narratives become intertwined in layers; they form a paradise that is not the untamed nature, but a constructed garden, artificial utopia, personal haven, ecological fantasy, exploitable natural resource, or ecstatic condition. A paradise where lions eat grass, and the virtual appearance creates a sense of unity.
