ANNE ROININEN            ABOUT ME / WORKS / CV / BLOG



Untill 9th of January in Southbank Center, London

“Anne Roininen’s light sculpture Car Show (2017 – 2021) is made from real cars, and is about cars.

Our relationship with cars is changing all the time. In terms of ecology and the way we use cities, cars have gone from a symbol of luxury, to objects which divide opinion.

Cars now are as linked to air pollution and lung disease as they are to the freedom of the open road.

By turning the cars into light sculptures, Roininen seems to be summoning mechanical ghosts. These cars appear abandoned, lost and from another age.

The artwork is commissioned with the generous support of The Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland.”
