Maan läpi – Through the Earth
The exhibition is open Tue–Fri 13:00–19:00, Sat–Sun 11:00–19:00
Maan läpi (Through the Earth) exhibition consists of final works from the graduates of Art School MAA. The name of the exhibition, Maan läpi, can be interpreted or understood as the act of going through, somehow and somewhat puncturing the surface and making a hole or a “mouth” in the ground or planet. The exhibition presents versatile works in different mediums from sculptures to video and installation to fiber art.
Participating artists: Anastasia Anikina, Ina Gabrielsson, Ida Lindgren, Antrei Riukula, Ida Tomminen, Emmet Veinola and Saija Vihervuori.
The themes of the artworks reflect the ongoing climate crisis and the need to challenge the relationship of existence and environment. In these uncertain times the works awake interest in knowing, un-knowing and relearning. The exhibition has been supported by The Finnish Cultural Foundation, Helsinki International Artist Programme (HIAP) and Art School MAA.
