For ten days ARTag Gallery’s Studio will convert into Kim Somervuori’s painting and drawing installation. The name of the ensemble is Drawings – diary of an old kid, and it extends in the studio space from floor to ceiling. However, the installation is composed of individual pieces.
The exhibition is a clear extension to Somervuori’s earlier installations, and its aesthetics are similar to the drawing installation we saw at the Mältinranta Artcenter in Tampere last autumn.
Sovervuori is a material romantic in whose artworks paper and fabric are never just the base, but time has left its marks on them. Cultural references are layered in the content of the artworks, and in this installation they form a web of references and meanings, reminiscent of the reality.
The exhibition will be open from the 11th til the 21st of April. Wed-Fri 12-18, Sat-Sun 12-16.
Closed on Good Friday.
