URBAN CREATURES
27.01.2006 - 28.05.2006
ULF AMINDE, SERGIO BELINCHON, SHAHRAM ENTEKHABI, MATHILDE TER HEIJNE, REMY MARKOWITSCH, BJØRN MELHUS, MAYA ROOS, KAI SCHIEMENZ, MICHAELA SCHWEIGER.

The theme of Urban Creatures arises from the phenomena common to modern big cities. Isolation, narcissism, insecurity and fragmented interaction are the flip side of the culture of mass urban societies, where individuals must try to construct an identity for themselves. The interpretation and construction of reality, just as the formation of self-image, take place under the powerful influence of the media and their codifications. The artists of the exhibition all live in Berlin, although they represent six different nationalities. Their sculptures, installations, videos and photos explore the urban matrix as a space of everyday life and as cultural production. The exhibition is curated by Dorothee Bienert, an art historian from Berlin. The artists are Ulf Aminde, Sergio Belinchon, Shahram Entekhabi, Remy Markowitsch, Bjørn Melhus, Olaf Nicolai, Maya Roos, Michaela Schweiger, Mathilde Ter Heijne.

ME, MYSELF, NYKARLEBY [THE WORLD] AND I
27.01.2006 - 19.03.2006
ALBERT BRAUN

The German-born artist Albert Braun (born Vilseck, 1958) explores the nature of identity, using as an example his Swedish-speaking hometown of Nykarleby in Finland. Braun sees himself as a foreigner who observes his surroundings and life with undisguised interest, critically, narratively and also with humour. His works combine documentary photographic printouts with objects and structures. Braun looks at parochialism and romantic nationality with an ironic twinkle in his eye.

CAROLUS ENCKELL
24.03.2006 - 28.05.2006


"Painting is at its purest when it rejects all symbolic and allegorical meanings, positing subjective interpretation in their stead," wrote Carolus Enckell in 1992. Known as a painter and skilful writer, it has been said that art for Enckell is a manifestation of "true," original life in an aesthetic, universal form. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Pori Art Museum will publish a book of essays by Enckell in the museum´s TUTKA series of studies on art. The book is edited by Jorma Hautala and Jaakko Lintinen.

CAST
24.03.2006 - 28.05.2006
VESA-PEKKA RANNIKKO

Vesa-Pekka Rannikko (born Turku, 1968) usually makes his sculptures with tinted plaster. The basic ingredients of his work are materials and their combinations, and the exploration of light as an element that defines both shape and place. Another topic explored by Rannikko is the essence of colour when it appears in a physical form. In the Pori Art Museum, Rannikko will use the Project Room itself as one element of his installation, disrupting its clinical, unbroken impression.

COLLECTORS EYE
08.09.2006 - 07.01.2007


The autumn theme at the Pori Art Museum is the relationship between art and people. Art records and reflects, builds and describes both itself and the life force of the society in which it is born. When art collectors expand their collections, they build an image not only of art and its development but also of themselves. Like the artist, the collector is both an actor and the object of the action, both the messenger and the recipient. The collector is free to look for new ways of understanding and interaction, but is also bound by a strong tradition, by existing and established forms of interpretation and thinking. Through three collections, the exhibition THE COLLECTOR’S EYE displays three subjective, partly overlapping views of contemporary Finnish and international art.

OSCAR MUÑOZ
08.09.2006 - 05.11.2006


Poverty, drugs, crime, political unrest and kidnappings. Three out of every four kidnappings in the world take place in Latin America. Victims of politics, economics and everyday life, people simply vanish – or a ransom is extorted from their families. A person is a means, a victim, a loved one – or, as in the exhibition, a work of art.

SIGNS
10.11.2006 - 07.01.2007


A sign can evoke its meaning within a tangible environment filled with signs. In the exhibition SIGNS the works could be described by the words: ‘be for me a sign of something’. They move through a profusion of basic symbolism, human facial expressions, sign language and gestures, in which the viewer can find both signs and significance. The basic elements of colour, shape and surface symbolise and create a bridge between the structures of art, philosophy and everyday life.

ASIAN PIECES
10.11.2006 - 07.01.2007
TERO KIISKINEN

‘I was given a typewriter to use. As promised, here is the circular of my diary, such as it is, unchanged, with nothing added, with emotions of the moment, some even quite intimate, but let it be.’ (Tero Kiiskinen, in his diary, 1976.) The theme for the autumn season at the Pori Art Museum is the relationship between people and art; art and life.

Tero Kiiskinen (1948–1996) was a stage designer who graduated from the University of Art and Design Helsinki in 1974, after which he spent a further year studying at the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts in Poland. In 1975 he began making long trips to Asia where, in total, he eventually spent some six years.
