(vill jag bli lagat?)

Skammen och det offentliga – diagnostikens komplexitet.
And all those sexy side effects.


In her practice AnnaLeena Prykäri explores mental illnesses in society and the person behind a diagnosis. Silenced, ignored and marginalized topics are discussed from personal and emotional viewpoints.

Through her work Prykäri intends to embody the person behind a label in order to displace and highlight the stigmas, taboos and shame associated with mental illness; from the pharmacy shelves to the daily discussions. She aims to reveal the positive and negative sides of a diagnosis.

Prykäri also interlaces personal and political aspects of a diagnosis with the duality in theme. She utilizes the interconnections between these themes collectively with the material's anatomy, poetry and emotional foundation.

In her conceptual exhibition 365 (let's talk about it) Prykäri references pain, sorrow and shame, as well as the complexity of diagnostics, the control of chaos and a personal archive – 365 days, 52 weeks of the year.

This exhibition will be the first time Prykäri presents her topic in a larger scale for the public.
