In his exhibition, Artists and Models, Rodney Graham brings to the Serlachius Museums his disguise self-portraits for which he is best known. Graham’s exhibition at Serlachius Museum Gösta is his first in Finland.

In his works, Graham explores the layers of Western culture, both everyday life and collective memory. He draws on wide-ranging references to philosophy, psychoanalysis, and the art and popular culture of different eras.

He is best known for his disguise self-portraits, monumental photographic works in which he smoothly assumes various fictional roles. His art is characterised not only by subtle nostalgia and melancholy, but also gentle humour, poetic irony and meticulous finishing of the works.
