Here, she gives us insight into her connection to Finnish design, her personal approach to craft, and how experimentation is lead by her own curiosity.” Picture by a dear friend and a photographer Ananya […]

  Suojelija (guardian) 2019 / kĂ€sin rakennettu musta savi ja lasite   NĂ€yttelyn nimi viittaa syvyyteen, varjoihin ja pimeyden merkitykseen. Pimeys on elintĂ€rkeĂ€ luonnonvara, jota on syytĂ€ suojella*. KysymyksiĂ€ herĂ€ttĂ€vĂ€, maailmankaikkeutta hallitseva pimeĂ€ aine on suurimmilta osin nĂ€kymĂ€töntĂ€ ja sen koostumusta ei vielĂ€ tiedetĂ€**. MitĂ€ on pimeys meissĂ€? Universumin kokoisista kysymyksistĂ€ liikutaan yksilön kokoisiin kokemuksiin. Dark Matters yhteisnĂ€yttely koostuu pÀÀosin keraamisista veistoksista ja ÀÀnestĂ€. Kuljun keraamiikasta kĂ€sin rakentamat veistokset toimivat esittĂ€jinĂ€ Metson sĂ€veltĂ€mĂ€lle ja esittĂ€mĂ€lle […]

  Tervetuloa Muotoilusyksy 2019 nĂ€yttelyn avajaisiin torstaina 5.9. klo 18.00 TĂ€ky galleriaan. NĂ€yttely auki 6.10.–30.9.2019 METSÄ PALAA / FOREST RETURNS Kuvataiteilija Veera Kulju pohtii teoksissaan luonnonvaraisen katoavuutta rakentamalla savesta haurasta ikimetsÀÀ. Teokset muodostavat usein installaatioita, joissa pÀÀosaan nousee runsas hauraus ja sen luoma iĂ€ttömyyden ja ajattomuuden tunnelma. Teosten taustalla on huoli siitĂ€, miten ihminen vaikuttaa luontoon, usein ymmĂ€rtĂ€mĂ€ttĂ€ sitĂ€ itse. NĂ€yttelyn nimi MetsĂ€ Palaa viittaa samanaikaisesti tuhoon ja toivoon. TĂ€ky Galleriassa nĂ€hdÀÀn valkoinen teoskokonaisuus, joka […]

“Kulju’s mirror-themed reliefs, the fairytale wall-hung artworks could have come straight from the dressing room of Snow White’s stepmother. In reality, they don’t reflect, but rather absorb the light.”  -Veikko Halmetoja Dusk, 2019 / hand-built black clay and glaze / ~70 X 55 X 15 cm   Ajattelemme Suomea metsien maana, mutta luonnontilaisen kaltaisia metsiĂ€ on maassamme jĂ€ljellĂ€ enÀÀ n. 5 prosenttia. TĂ€ysin luonnonvaraista, ihmisen koskematonta kolkkaa tuskin löytyy koko maapallolta. Ihminen vaikuttaa jatkuvasti luontoon, usein […]

BLEACH, 2019 Hand-built paper porcelain, glaze /  KĂ€sinrakennettu paperiposliini, lasite photo Chikako Harada Ihmisen kĂ€denjĂ€lki nĂ€kyy myös pinnanalaisissa metsissĂ€. Korallit ympĂ€ri maailman menettĂ€vĂ€t vĂ€riÀÀn nopeammin kuin koskaan aikaisemmin. Suurin tekijĂ€ on aiheuttamamme ilmastonmuutos ja sen vaikutuksesta lĂ€mpenevĂ€t vedet. Korallien laaja haalistuminen huomattiin ensimmĂ€isen kerran jo vuonna 1979. Ilmastonmuutoksen kiihtymisen myötĂ€ koralleille ei jÀÀ tarpeeksi aikaa palautua. VĂ€rinsĂ€ menettĂ€nyt koralli on kuolemassa, ja silloin hĂ€viÀÀ koko sen yllĂ€pitĂ€mĂ€ ekosysteemi. Luonnon yritys sopeutua tilanteeseen on vastikÀÀn havaittu […]
