SÄRKYVÄÄ / CERAMICS FACING THE NEW 03.05.2021 – 28.08.2022 Group Exhibition The idea underlying the Ceramics Facing the New exhibition is kintsugi, the Japanese tradition of mending broken pottery with gold or another metal. Instead of concealing the damage, kintsugi seeks to establish a new relationship with it. In this exhibition, kintsugi serves as a metaphor for society. A fracture can be a signal of something new. How can fragments be re-joined to create a renewed yet enduring […]

Noir / Veera Kulju11.12.2020–3.1.2021 Veera Kulju creates ceramic sculptures and reliefs by hand. Her idiom effortlessly refers to both natural forms and genres that have utilized nature motifs. Her relationship to these genres is self-aware, even mischievous. Compared to, for example, the decorations of jugendstil, Kulju has a more liberal approach. As she creates the shapes by hand, they don’t need to be regular or reproducible. As per its title, the Noir exhibition focuses on the colour black. The […]

  Suojelija (guardian) 2019 / käsin rakennettu musta savi ja lasite   Näyttelyn nimi viittaa syvyyteen, varjoihin ja pimeyden merkitykseen. Pimeys on elintärkeä luonnonvara, jota on syytä suojella*. Kysymyksiä herättävä, maailmankaikkeutta hallitseva pimeä aine on suurimmilta osin näkymätöntä ja sen koostumusta ei vielä tiedetä**. Mitä on pimeys meissä? Universumin kokoisista kysymyksistä liikutaan yksilön kokoisiin kokemuksiin. Dark Matters yhteisnäyttely koostuu pääosin keraamisista veistoksista ja äänestä. Kuljun keraamiikasta käsin rakentamat veistokset toimivat esittäjinä Metson säveltämälle ja esittämälle […]

  Tervetuloa Muotoilusyksy 2019 näyttelyn avajaisiin torstaina 5.9. klo 18.00 Täky galleriaan. Näyttely auki 6.10.–30.9.2019 METSÄ PALAA / FOREST RETURNS Kuvataiteilija Veera Kulju pohtii teoksissaan luonnonvaraisen katoavuutta rakentamalla savesta haurasta ikimetsää. Teokset muodostavat usein installaatioita, joissa pääosaan nousee runsas hauraus ja sen luoma iättömyyden ja ajattomuuden tunnelma. Teosten taustalla on huoli siitä, miten ihminen vaikuttaa luontoon, usein ymmärtämättä sitä itse. Näyttelyn nimi Metsä Palaa viittaa samanaikaisesti tuhoon ja toivoon. Täky Galleriassa nähdään 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 metsiä on maassamme jäljellä enää n. 5 prosenttia. Täysin luonnonvaraista, ihmisen koskematonta kolkkaa tuskin löytyy koko maapallolta. Ihminen vaikuttaa jatkuvasti luontoon, usein […]
