Jani Leinonen – The Truth
Jani Leinonen’s long-awaited solo exhibition The Truth will open at Serlachius Museum Gösta on 27 March 2021. For the show, the artist has created a magical installation implemented using centuries-old stained-glass techniques, offering its visitor a plunge into the long history of propaganda and manipulation – and the colorful present.
The exhibition will also reunite Leinonen and world-famous street artist Banksy after six years, as Banksy’s show A Visual Protest opens at the museum in mid-May 2021 and will be overlapping with Leinonen’s exhibition for three months. In 2015, Banksy invited Leinonen to exhibit at his Dismaland Bemusement Park -show in Weston-super-Mare, UK.
“It’s a showcase for the best artists I could imagine, apart from the two who turned me down.” – Banksy
