Mikko Kuorinki was born 1977 in Rovaniemi, Finland. When he was 15-years old, he started to release cassettes and publish fanzines. Kuorinki holds a BA from Turku Art Academy (2004) and an MA from the University of Arts and Design Helsinki (2008). He has exhibited widely including at Frankfurt Kunstverein, CAC (Vilnius), Malmö Kunsthalle and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art (Helsinki). One of the central method in Kuorinki’s current practice is the act of wandering.
Born in 1978 in Argentina, Diego Bruno lives and works in Helsinki. He studied History of Art at the University of Buenos Aires, holds a BA in Fine Arts from the Escola Massana, Barcelona and an MFA in Fine Arts from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. Bruno’s work has been shown at Wiels Center for Contemporary Art, Brussels; Museum of Latin American Art, Buenos Aires; Centre d´Art Santa Monica, Barcelona; Manifesta 08 Murcia; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, New York; Center for Contemporary Art Celje; Extra City, Antwerp; The Solo Project, Basel; Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona and Malmö Kunsthalle, among others.
Bruno and Kuorinki run together Ruler which is a collaborative platform for programming, exhibiting and publishing. Ruler adopts various models of artistic production and reception, acting as an office that develops projects without a permanent physical space. Instead, it seeks locations that suit the specificities of each individual project.
Bruno and Kuorinki will develop a collaborative exhibition at INCA.
Exhibition is supported by Arts Promotion Center Finland and Frame Visual Art Finland.
