ilkka paloniemi (FI)
Neon signs have been used for various advertising and information purposes since the early 20th century. In his work Peace Ltd., Finnish artist Ilkka Paloniemi plays with the content of this information by interrupting an iconic symbol to reveal something different. In a world awash with disinformation and fake news, he uses this work to draw our attention to the fact that a small technical glitch can radically change the meaning of the message.
Artist, curator and designer Ilkka Paloniemi (1964, FI) is always amazed by light and creates work in the fields of light, art and architecture.
