JUSSI HEIKKILÄ


Jussi Heikkilä creates his first sound installation in The Wing at the Pori Art Museum. The soundscape of the work, which was recorded in Estonia, takes the thought of being free as a bird into a shattering cacophony in which the forces of nature once more demonstrate their might.

IC-98, THESES ON THE BODY POLITIC
30.03.2007 - 20.05.2007
VISA SUONPÄÄ AND PATRIK SÖDERLUND


IC-98 (”Iconoclast 1998”) was founded in 1998 as a reaction to the restriction of academic writing. From the beginning, the group has tried to act as freely as possible, always putting the context and the idea before the medium, and the group-subject before the individual, never minding the barriers between different (academic, artistic or activist). In practice, the world of contemporary art has proved to be the most flexible environment for diverse projects, being a free zone of experimentation within the society at large. Though the label ART has en enormous power to neutralise message, and regardless of the fact that art world increasingly resembles the high fashion industry, it nonetheless offers possibilities to put forward ideas without the preconditions of academic work (rules, objectivity), the market (surplus value, capitalist modes of distributions), or activism (the threat of dogmatism). In fact, in IC-98´s idealist-pragmatic programme the project are labelled art only for strategic reasons – the strategy works as long as the concepts of art do not come to dominate the discourse. The same applies to the individuals working in the group: you call yourself artist, just because it is institutionally convenient, because the very concept af ARTIST is obscure.

IC-98 does not confine itself to one medium. The medium of choice always follows strategically the context, its history and the present situation, and the objectives in question. Typically, the working methods have contained interventions and installations in public and gallery spaces as well in publications. In recent years, IC-98 has concentrated primary on the productions of free distribution books. The books, distributed in editions of 500-2000, are collage-like, heterogenic assemblages, or toolboxes, of text, models, instructions, images, diagrams and drawings. Typically, an individual project combines multiple media to present a multifaceted whole – and to connect it to other projects.

IT’S ABOUT THE ART OF OUR TIME - MAIRE GULLICHSEN
27.05.2007 - 30.09.2007


” Maire Gullichsen (1907-1990) was a legend in her lifetime. She, if any Finnish woman who lived in the 20th century, had the makings of a hero myth, but heroism is understood in male terms, and is thus poorly suited to Gullichsen’s personality.” Tuula Karjalainen in the commemorative book on Maire Gullichsen, 2007

This year marks the centenary of the birth of Maire Gullichsen. The Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation and the Pori Art Museum celebrate the occasion with a special exhibition and the publishing of a catalogue and commemorative book in association with the Central Art Archives of the Finnish National Gallery.
