The inaugural exhibition at Yö Galleria is of international level. Al Paldrok, a renowned Estonian artist and a member of Artists’ Association Yö, brings to Finland the acclaimed Apocalyptic Landscapes exhibition of his Non Grata performance group.

Apocalyptic Landscapes exhibition deals with subcultures and human communities operating in and alongside the mainstream of our society, whose goals and patterns of behavior create the basis for the birth of a whole new society – a changed world order, the reincarnation of mythological creatures in apocalyptic fields. By exhibiting a living being as a mini-form of society and nature, through outer masks and protective layers. Bringing out the inner desires and passions of the human soul, as well as the hidden gray areas of the collective body. Anonymous Boh (Al Paldrok) and Taje Paldrok (Devil Girl) have been active on a frameless territory where an art object has seized to exist as a physical piece. Space has many dimensions upon which the activity has been built, it can be characterized by features as structured chaos and performances.

“Anonymous Boh, via non-stop world tours, performances, exhibitions, and publications, has created one of the most representative, significant, timely and transformative art movements in all of history. As Ring Master, Boh has become the Wild Bill Hickok, the P.T. Barnum, the Alfred Jarry, the Tristan Tzara, the Ezra Pound, the Orson Welles of our Era. We have entered The Apocalypse, The Storm. Boh, implementing all The Arts via NON GRATA’S Diverse Universe global performances, reveals to us not only where we presently stand in The Storm but he also conjures visions of our soon to be realized post-apocalyptic absurdly playfully tormented kaleidoscopic landscapes.”
– Ron Whitehead, Outlaw Poet, Kentucky
