Tom Molloy’s Protest


Tom Molloy is an Irish artist living in France. Modern art museum Kiasma in Helsinki shows tiny photographs he has cut out from newspapers and internet prints. These hundreds of ‘real life paper dolls’ are squeezed on a ten meter shelf. It is a chaos of opinions in 3D.

I’ve seen it twice now. It’s interesting how studying the artwork make one think all the mess and contradicting opinions we have in the world. There is not one truth, but some opinions are more justified than others.

Molloy’s Protest is only one example of the interesting show “Demonstrating minds“. Highly recommended!

Kiasmassa on parhaillaan mielenkiintoinen näyttely “Eri mieltä”. Tässä yksi esimerkki: irlantilaisen Tom Molloyn Protesti, joka koostuu pienistä sanomalehdistä ja internetistä löytyneistä mielenosoittajakuvista. Suosittelen!
