  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 ❀ Mander Co-operation with the talented Sanna Mander for Protoshop 2011 Nowadays making decisions is tricky. There’s never enough time and things just seem to linger. The Decider is a candle holder, which introduces destiny to the game and will decide for you. Switch off the lights, light the candles and wait. The flickering flames slow down the pace. In the end, your answer is lit. “Yes” or “No” photo: Paavo Martikainen
