Paul Kalemba: Notes for the Weltgeist


‘Notes for the Weltgeist’, is a collection of found objects assemblages, from Finland, Iceland and Australia presented as sculpture, photography and video. It focuses on the subject position of the non-human and the abject positioning of nature by conceptually removing the nature/culture binary and inviting a dialogue with chance and phenomena. As an ongoing body of practice-led research, this exhibition continues to invite a questioning of the prevailing anthropocentric worldview while telling contemporary stories of ecology and place.

Paul Kalemba is Visual Artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His work explores the notions of nature and ecology in the Anthropocene though found object still-life compositions. It takes inspiration from the natural sciences and contemporary ecological philosophy, as well as object-based narratives, phenomena and the absurd. ‘Notes for the Weltgeist’, is his first Finnish solo exhibition.
