Tommi Toija: Mutatis mutandis
A boy clutching a balloon watches it intently, another boy is seen, confidently, trustingly, waving a friend goodbye, while elsewhere a drunk slumps against a wall. We all know what it is to brood, to feel embarrassed or ashamed, to make a scene. In Tommi Toija’s sculptures we discover ourselves – and our friends and loved ones.
Toija works with everyday materials – clay, leftover pieces of veneer, hardware store finds and loot from skips. His endearing little man figure has appeared in several exhibitions over the past decade. Now, Toija has re-created him in truly enormous proportions. Bad Bad Boy, a more than 8 metres high concrete sculpture will soon appear in the vicinity of Helsinki’s Kauppatori market.
