For the painter and author Adam Avikainen, all of nature becomes a crime scene in an ongoing story that subsumes all the elements of his life in an extended artistic process.

CSI DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES deals with the role of natural sciences in our present, with the artist as a “medium” and detective, and with painting as praxis. Avikainen plays with scientific methods and theories as well as with forensic methodologies, expanding them in a poetic way to a continous narrative exploration.

For the 333 investigative episodes of the new work, HKW’s surroundings became a production site.
