saara ekström's limbus opened last night at kiasma museum of contemporary art.

ekström's video installations and photographs describe a midway between bloom and decay, natural and artificial, life and death.

by themselves these topics often seem fully exhausted as the binaries themselves are such monuments of modern patterns of thinking and even her preferred imagery of wilting flowers can appear blasé, but the collection of images and videos is so strikingly beautiful while challenging our conceptions of beauty that i, for one, am willing to ignore the downsides.

go see.
