State of Waiting

7-21 February, Gallery Augusta

State of waiting is an exhibition made in collaboration with unaccompanied underage asylum seekers living in Finland. The installations reflect the experiences of the youth living in the middle of the asylum seeking process and invite the audience to consider their own relationship to otherness and asylum seekers.

The exhibition is part of the Paikannuksia community art project organised by visual artists, Heli Mäkinen and Tellervo Viitaniemi at the Espoo and Siuntio Reception Centres in the autumn of 2013.

The exhibition is supported by Finnish Children and Youth Foundation’s Myrsky project, Siuntio Reception Centre and HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme.

Welcome to the opening on Thursday 6.2.2014 at 6–8 pm.

A performance by Anna Knappe and Sepideh Rahaa at 7 pm.
