Maisa Majakka (b. 1989) is an artist who is at the beginning of her career and is currently studying at the Academy of Fine Arts. Her main material is ceramics. Majakka’s artworks were loved at last year’s bachelor’s exhibition and this new ensemble continues on the same line. Ceramics turn into colourful tales that are deeply attached to the present.
The exhibition will be open from April 26th till May 19th. We-fri 12-18, Sat-Sun 12-16.
Welcome to the opening party on Thursday, April 25th from 5 yo 7 pm!
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.
Sami Havia (b. 1982) is known for his paintings and drawings where different techniques are layered into an interesting ensemble bursting with details. In his new exhibition we will be seeing a series of paintings on paper, where the banal meets with the sublime and where the design language is in debt to the creases of baroque and the swirls of rococo.
The exhibition will be open from the 26th of April till May 19th. Wed-Fri 12-18, Sat-Sun 12-16.
Welcome to the opening party on Thursday, April 25 from 5 to 7 pm!
