Verdant, mythical, and a bit twee, the landscapes of Finnish sculptor Kim Simonsson are populated by sweet or slightly malevolent beings, including two-headed rabbits and tiny humanoids bound in feathers. All are covered in mossy textures that either integrate them with their forested landscapes or cast them in feral relief. Call them “moss people”—Simonsson does. Or think of them as shamans. Their effect is transportive, if isolating. Simonsson’s fantastic worlds are another marvelous conjuring of art and aesthetics from the imagination of the Scandinavian North. Down the rabbit hole we go at this truly original exhibition.
