Institut finlandais presents its new exhibition : Leaky Teeth by Dafna Maimon

Known for her subversive narratives and physically engaging settings, Maimon invites the public to listen to their bodies and discover the wisdom within their bodily knowledge.

Maimon develops a vibrant universe using somatic body techniques, luscious materials and absurd humour to immerse the viewer inside the cavities and mysteries of the body. The exhibition consists of a series of drawings, sculptural elements and a video piece (31’08) filmed in Maison Louis Carré, a modernist residential home designed by Alvar and Elissa Aalto for the renowned gallerist Louis Carré, as well as in a prehistoric cave constructed by Maimon. The exhibition is on view from July 2 to August 1st at the Institut finlandais.

When our eyes touch is the first chapter of A I S T I T / coming to our senses.
