Mind-Building – Catalogue of the Exhibition in the Pavilion of Finland at La Biennale Architettura 2018
In Whispering Void, artist Joakim Eneroth explores the nature of the mind from a Western psychological perspective combined with contemporary neuroscience. It is a continued examination of the theme which was investigated in his previous art project Short Stories of the Transparent Mind from an Eastern philosophical point of view. In Whispering Void, Eneroth reveals the deeper subconscious layers of experience, the dance of notions and perceptions in the fluctuating mind. The questions often revolve around how to distinguish the mental projections of the mind from reality itself.
Joakim Eneroth, born 1969, is an internationally established artist whose work is represented in the collections of Tate Modern in London, Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York, MEP in Paris and Moderna Museet in Stockholm, among others. Awareness and mind are the themes that unite Eneroth’s protean work.
With each new series, the artist explores another aspect of consciousness and the boundaries where our inner and outer worlds meet.
