PUG OSLO to Present Arno Rafael Minkkinen at Kyotographie

March 10, 2016
//Arno Rafael Minkkinen: showing self-portraits of his nude body in natural landscapes, Minkkinen fully merges his limbs and torso with the surroundings. Like a chameleon, he blurs the lines between where the world ends and his body begins.//

Circle of Life// 

The Circle is the ultimate system, representing the birth, life,

and death of all Nature’s creations. Everything is

connected to this circle, intersecting and expanding.

Creating a powerful pattern, showing us the fragility and

beauty of our existence. Through our exhibitions everyone is

invited to imagine their own role in the great “Circle of Life”
