Rannikko’s sculptures are reminiscent of paintings. He creates them by building layers of colour and using the trowel like a brush. Rannikko refers to his own works as “lying sculptures” because of the conflicting experience they evoke by producing a mixture of two- and three-dimensional sensations. This results in dialogues between embodied perception and illusion. The dissonance raises questions about the work’s relationship to reality, its topic, and the linguistic nature of vision.
