Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Olentoja (Creatures)
Presented by The Arts at Wellesley
September 18, 2013 - January 5, 2014
The Davis is pleased to present Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Olentoja (Creatures), the first multi-installation exhibition at a U.S. museum by the internationally acclaimed Finnish artist. Eija-Liisa Ahtila is best known for her lushly beautiful and psychologically intense videos, and for the precise calibration (of image, sound, and environment) of her installations. Vivid and mesmerizing, her videos are mysterious and open-ended, often imbued by notions of the sacred and miraculous in everyday experience.
