Potentiality for Love

Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s new hybrid piece combines sculpture and with moving image technology.

Potentiality for Love deals with the potential for empathy and love towards other living beings. The three parts have each a different approach on the theme. The work turns attention to those human emotions that could serve as a foundation for dismantling the hierarchical structures between living things, thereby engendering a turn towards non-humans and the recognition of others. The work reflects the origins of these emotions, how we define them and how we conceive of their function as part of a larger continuum of living beings.

Potentiality for Love is a Serlachius Museums’ commission, which is receiving its premiere in Mänttä before embarking on an extensive world tour, including a show at the Biennale of Sydney in March 2018, among others.
