~ 'Shrine (Detroit)' is the fourth realization of an on-going project. Years ago in Berlin, Kuorinki noticed a small simple looking shrine placed near the ceiling of a Nepalese restaurant. Much later, he felt the need to build a "shrine" into an exhibition and into a studio he was temporarily working in. Most of the objects, texts and images placed on the shelves carry a personal significance for him - they might carry some kind of energy. Before Detroit, he has build shrines in Malmo (Sweden), Stockholm (Sweden) and in Den Haag (Holland). ~
