“And just as music is the space between notes, just as the stars are beautiful because of the space between them, just as the sun strikes raindrops at a certain angle and throws a prism of colour across the sky – so the space where I exist, and want to keep existing… is exactly this middle distance: where despair struck pure otherness and created something sublime.”- Karl Ove Knausgård, My Struggle.
For the past 5 years, Finnish artist Mikko Rikala has been exploring temporal phenomena and meditative practices as an extended part of his artistic and conceptual oeuvre. Approaching philosophical questions from a self-proposed system of irrational thought, the artist presents photographs, drawings and composed objects, in metaphorically charged constructions.
