Date and time5 – 28.3.2021
Kristiina Mäenpää – Murtuma, Hanna Råst – Perfect Views, Maija Blåfield – The Fantastic
The works of Kristiina Mäenpää observe the relationship between two- and three-dimensional space. Murtuma is a space-related installation work that extends towards the interfaces and intermediate spaces of opposites.
The works of Hanna Råst are destroyed, broken, censored or missing something essential. These concrete manifestations of decay function as a guideline for the production and interpretation of the works. What do people see when they look at the cracks on an artwork? The disintegration and dismantling of works allows for an intermediate stage from which new variations and ideas can emerge. Is the work really ever finished?
The Fantastic by Maija Blåfield is a film about encountering the unknown and the relationship between imagination and reality. The film is built on interviews with exiled North Koreans, who describe what they imagined the outside world to be like, based on their experiences of watching smuggled western fiction films.
