06.01.17 – EMMA HELLE: NUIT ET ENFANT

Published

Emma Helle´s (b. 1979) works are dramatically voluptuous. They underline the similarities between postmodern and baroque forms.

The exposition will be open from the 6th till the 29th of January.

Welcome to the opening party on January 5th, from 17h00 to 19h00!

Emme Helle will also be at the gallery on Sunday, January 8th, from 2 p.m. till 4 p.m.

04.11.16 – DZAMIL KAMANGER: PASSPORTS TO HEAVEN AND HELL

Published

Dzamil Kamanger (b. 1948, Iran) uses traditional handicraft techniques in his works, but the themes move within current affairs and questions regarding identity and humanity. A central part of his works are the refugees and the feeling of otherness – both experienced through personal history. The aesthetics also play an important role. Both the embroidered and the beaded works are like small treasures.

The exhibition will be open from the 4th till the 27th of November.

Wed-Fri 12h00-18h00, Sat-Sun 12h00-16h00.

Opening party on Thursday, November 3rd from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

14.10.16 – KIMMO HOKKANEN – DESERTED PLACES

Published

Autiopaikoilla, “Deserted Places”, is an exhibition by Kimmo Hokkanen, that was born while Kimmo was taking the pictures for Johanna Vehkoo´s nonfiction book by the same name.

In the pictures you move both in an abandoned mining town of Kainuu, a Soviet ghost town in Svalbard, as well as a test laboratory in post industrial Detroit.

Many of the pictures tell a story of a post industrial time – a tremendous structural change that affects a big part of the world´s population. Hokkanen and Vehkoo travelled to abandoned placed, ghost towns, places in between and to no-mans-lands in order to really figure out why these places that used to flourish and be important to so many people, are now completely empty.

The book Autiopaikoilla, “Deserted Places”, will be sold at a reduced price in the opening party, and it can be bought from the exhibition during three weeks.

Link to the book on the publisher´s page: http://www.teos.fi/kirjat/kaikki/2016-syksy/autiopaikoilla.html

Exhibition open at the ARTag Gallery Studio from October 14th till November 6th.Wed-Fri 12h00-18h00, Sat-Sun 12h00-16h00.

Welcome to the opening party on Friday, October 14th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.!

14.10.16 – KETTUKI´S ARTIST OF THE YEAR: PASI SOUKKALA

Published

Pasi Soukkala (b. 1963) uses pencil and oil paint chalks to create detailed worlds where familiar animal characters, plants and symbols form a beautiful surface. Often, his works also have a dimension that carries a story. The trace of Soukkala´s drawing is unique and is based on the steady rhythm of the line. Small surfaces are like mosaic. Soukkala is one of the most unique Finnish artists that work by drawing.

08.09.16 – VAPPU ROSSI: ALL REQUIRED

Published

Vappu Rossi (born 1976) is a versatile artist who, regardless of the tool, studies the basic questions of humanity in her her artworks. Whether it is a performance, an animation or a painting, she lets us have a sneak peak inside our own head, and almost automatically we end up making a psychological interpretation of her works. In this exposition Rossi is seen as a classical drawer. The big artworks have been inspired, for instance, by unfinished renaissance sculptures where you can even spot the traces of the chisel.

Welcome to the opening party on Wednesday, September 7th from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m.! The event will be inaugurated by philosopher Kai Alhanen.

The exposition will be open from the 8th of September till October 9th. Wed-Fri 12 p.m.-6 p.m., Sat-Sun 12 p.m.-4 p.m.
