Exhibition design Jussi Karjalainen

Upon entry, the big exhibition hall displays a series of photographs taken of Karjalainen’s works in their natural habitat, i.e. records and books in shelves, posters on walls and t-shirts worn by their owners.

Up the steps the smaller rooms show his work in sections.  Posters, books, cds and records.

His work is not hidden behind glass panels or acrylic boxes, it is there to be touched. The books are displayed in custom wall brackets whose sizes are dictated by the thickness of the books. The visitors are invited to lift out the books and take them in their hands.

The cds and record covers are sunken into wooden tables and the finger holes make taking them out easy. This minimal solution allows the objects to be picked up and to be placed back into the correct grid.
