Jani Leinonen’s widely recognized beggar sign installation Anything Helps is included in the exhibition No Man Is an Island – The Satanic Verses at ARoS Aarhus Art Museum.
The exhibition addresses the contemporary global, social and economic challenges and presents works both from the ARoS collection as well as a series of distinctive works on loan. The exhibition features carefully selected installations by a number of international artists including Andy Warhol, Ron Mueck, Elmgreen & Dragset, Tony Matelli, Bjørn Nørgaard and Shirin Neshat amongst others.
Leinonen’s Anything Helps- installation has earlier been shown at the Finnish National Gallery Kiasma in 2015, and at the Venice Biennale, Nordic Pavilion in 2009 in a smaller setup curated by Elmgreen & Dragset.
The exhibition was conceived after an idea by Erlend G. Høyersten and is co-curated by Erik Nørager Pedersen and Pernille Taagaard Dinesen.
The exhibition is open from September 3, 2016 – January 7, 2018
