February 12, 3-5 pm, Studio Augustin, HIAP
Australian artist Eric Rossi (b. 1971) opens the doors of his studio to the public.
Rossi’s methodology is to travel, and his artwork results from the operation in the mode of an artist-tourist. His latest works explore the cultural hybridity within globalised world. Rossi’s investigation of his Finnish-Australian identity through art is an attempt to understand his positioning between Asia-Pacific and Europe. The work also includes aspects his own mythology and history. Rossi is using painting, video, performance, installation and photography in his artistic practice.
Eric Rossi is in Finland on a three-month artist residency awarded by the Australian Council for the Arts and hosted by HIAP.
