Entrance hosts NSFW gallery from Gothenburg, Sweden, presenting works by Ilja Karilampi.
Karilampi presents several new works: the video “Norwegian Roadmovie 2”, a hike on foot from Sweden over the border to Norway, and a printed series of deconstructed “Milady Auras”, created from the leaked assets of a derivative NFT project with the same name.
Ilja Karilampi (b. 1983, Gothenburg, Sweden) is an artist based in Berlin, educated at Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main and the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Karilampi works with an ongoing aesthetic development related to musical energy and visual narrative, building a conceptual world of glamorous social realism. Through materials such as colored vinyl, engraved aluminum, videos, and large scale sculptural gestures, Karilampi attempts to manifest our ever-streaming iconography into one coherent visual ecosystem.
He has exhibited at MoMA PS1, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki, Sandy Brown and KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, hFACTOR in Lagos, Revolver Galería in Lima, and Temnikova & Kasela Gallery in Tallinn.
