Unseen and Meijburg & Co are delighted to announce that Pasi Orrensalo (b. 1969, Finland) is the winner of this year’s Meijburg Art Commission. Artists submitted a proposal to create a unique photography-based artwork for the chance to bring their prospective project to life, and to be included in the art collection of Meijburg & Co Tax Lawyers.
This year’s jury consisted of Wilbert Kannekens (Chairman Managing Board at Meijburg & Co), Susan Bright (Curator and Writer) and W.M. Hunt (Lecturer, Author and Adjunct Professor at the School of Visual Arts).
Pasi Orrensalo is an artist who uses photography to tell stories that are filtered through his distinctive view on life. His work focuses on the narratives of his subjects’ past and future. Orrensalo is represented by Galerie Mirko Mayer in Cologne and Shoot Gallery in Oslo. He is exhibiting at Unseen Amsterdam 2017 with Galerie Mirko Mayer.
