FLUXUS NY
[10.06.2016 - 28.08.2016]

PROJECT ROOM, MEDIApoint

Whimsical, playful and socially acute! Artist Henry Merimaa takes works from the Fluxus collection at Pori Art Museum and places them in conversation with early interventions of the NYTE collective. The NYTE collective was founded by young Pori-based artists in 1987. The paths of the emerging collec¬tive and the art museum criss-crossed around Fluxus in fruitful ways.

THE MARRIAGE (2015)
VAPPU ROSSI
[10.06.2016 - 28.08.2016]

Screening Space STAIR

Video, loop 12’13”, silent.
In a framed double portrait, spouses slowly turn into one another – and back. The change is gradual, almost imperceptible at first glance.
The work alludes to the ancient ´truth´ that, over time, spouses gradually begin to resemble each other. The couple, mutely staring past one another, is a laconic comment on marital bliss. Apart from the humorous level, the slowly changing picture also investigates issues of gender and companionship – most of the time the picture actually shows two hybrids – as well as the passage of time and mortality.

Vappu Rossi (b. 1976) is a visual artist who works also with graphic and media art. Her work focuses on portraying humanity both on the emotional and temporal scale while exploring issues of motion, embodiment as well as presence and absence. At home Rossi is best known for her drawings as well as spatial and multi-disciplinary applications of drawing. Her international reputation is based principally on media works whose quietly humorous, contemplative and coloristically ascetic style has won acclaim at festivals across the world. Rossi has an MA degree from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts and a BA from the University of Art and Design Helsinki. She lives and works in Helsinki.

FLORA
EGGERT PÉTURSSON
[12.02.2016 - 28.08.2016]

HALL

From a distance, Eggert Pétursson’s [b. 1956] paintings may look like abstract colour compositions, but a closer look reveals landscapes of minutely rendered flowers. The paintings are a fascinating blend of botanical accuracy and free painterliness. From an early age Pétursson began to study the flora of his native Iceland, and he later illustrated the first botanical guide of Icelandic flora with colour illustrations. Pétursson’s academic training centred on conceptual and experimental art. He has playfully said that Fluxus taught him that pictures too – floral paintings – can be (contemporary) art. Eggert Pétursson lives and works in Reykjavik. With his unique persistence, close association to local traditions of both landscape and lyrical art, Eggert has acquired a status as one of the most beloved contemporary artists in Iceland.

Produced by the Pori Art Museum, the exhibition Eggert Pétursson – Flora showcases the artist’s paintings from the early 1990s to the present. His most recent works from 2015 are now on show for the first time. The exhibition is produced in co-operation with the Icelandic i8 Gallery. Works for the show have been loaned by private collectors, the National Gallery of Iceland, EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art, and the Sara Hildén Art Museum.

AUTOCHTHONIC FANTASY
ARTTU MERIMAA
[12.02.2016 - 29.05.2016]

MEDIApoint

The term chthonic (from Greek khthonios) refers to subterranean things.

In spring 2014, a reconstruction of a dugout dwelling was constructed in the 6th district in the area where the Dugout Town had been located. Autochthonic Fantasy documents the construction of a dugout, putting it into dialogue with narratives that fetishise the subterranean. Dugout dwellings and the emergence of the Finnish welfare society are examined as a kind of chthonic process: what becomes visible, what is formed, what becomes tangible.

THEME: COLOURS, IN THE MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM SERIES
[12.02.2016 - 29.05.2016]

PROJECT ROOM

More than a hundred years ago, impressionism liberated art from the slavish imitation of nature. No longer was it necessary for artists to search for subjects in history or mythology. Symbolic meanings could be abandoned and the artist could rely exclusively on visual observation. Now that all subjects could be examined from a purely coloristic viewpoint, colours became a central issue in painting. Some art theorists sought to find new visions and solutions based on scientific observation, while others underlined the spiritual aspect of art as the starting point.

MY RACISM IS A HUMANISM. A LECTURE. (2013)
SASHA HUBER
[19.01.2016 - 03.04.2016]

STAIRCASE

Until recently, the life and work of Louis Agassiz (1807-1873) have been intentionally embellished. He has mainly been presented as a glaciologist, scientist, and director of academic institutions, both in his country of origin, Switzerland, and in his adopted country, the USA. Louis Agassiz was one of the pioneering thinkers of 19th century’s ‘scientific racism’. He studied enslaved Africans in the places of their suffering, and taught that they were innately and eternally inferior. He advocated strict racial segregation, ethnic cleansing, and government measures to prevent the birth of interracial children. His ideology can be traced right up to the Nazis’ racial theories. In the fictitious lecture, Agassiz attempts to vindicate himself and his theories.

Screening space STAIR

The Structure of Sleep, from the 3-part video work Shine on You Eevaliisa, 2014.
Staircase
HD video
"The Structure of Sleep" (2014) depicts the senselessness of everyday life and its alienated fragility, a kind of beauty. The world in the work takes place in a single building where a group of people moves as if in a choreography. The work explores human homelessness, our interpretations of the world and attempts at survival, using as its medium assemblages, magic, laconism, melancholia and humour, while viewing them all with a self-critical, yet amused gaze.

Our last stop of the journey: Seoul. The three-year video project which started in January 2013 has travelled through Hong Kong and Tokyo to the capital of South Korea. As in many cities in East Asia, rapid urbanization and globalization have irreversibly reshaped the urban landscape and social patterns. As the result, the notions of alienation, dislocation and inequality are widely shared among citizens and artists alike. Social change and its repercussions have continued to be one of the current themes in contemporary art in Seoul and these questions are also addressed in the five art works and documentaries to be screened in 2015.

[25.09.2015 - 17.01.2016]

WING, MEDIApoint, PROJECT ROOM

Curated by Pia Hovi-Assad and Anni Venäläinen
For Roger Ballen, photography is a journey of exploration into the human condition. His uncannily beautiful, almost disturbing pictures from remote South African villages and the outskirts of towns remain vividly in the mind. Ballen began his career as a documentary photographer. Gradually his work has developed into dreamlike tableaux featuring objects, people, animals and drawings. Ballen has used black-and-white photography throughout his entire career.

The photographic series “FORCES” by the artist duo Daniel and Geo Fuchs interrogates the phenomenon of military and armed forces.

The other part of the series comprises staged scenes that feature soldiers, army helicopters in intriguing landscapes, grenades and bombs positioned like colorful sweets. The pictures present an appealing surface at first glance, but on closer look there is something disturbing and threatening about them. The pictures of explosions have a striking presence, they exude strength and energy released through a transformation of material.

The Experiential Colour Workshop for Babies, weekly groups in spring 2015
Mentors: Annina Cerón, Terhi Sammalmaa, Jenni Uusitalo

Does the eastern rug of a little bum sweeper take wings? What does the cape of the Little Red Riding Hood or the fur of the big bad wolf feel like? Does Pessi’s and Illusia’s rainbow enchant with its colours? Will Alice find a way to the new world from a rabbit hole?
Old, classic fairy tales were the inspiration of the Experiential Colour Workshops for Babies in the spring 2015. Elements, colours, shapes, feels and scents known from the stories were used in the workshops through painting and experiencing. Each group of babies painted the weekly changing fairy tale to the big, soft book made of felt. That created a story of its own!

OKIN COLLECTIVE: OPERATION-FOR SOMETHING BLACK AND HOT (2012)
EAST ASIAN VIDEO FRAMES: SEOUL

The third location: Seoul. The three-year video project which started in January 2013 has reached the final destination of its journey to explore contemporary art scenes in East Asia. Korean contemporary art often remains in the shadows of its neighboring countries, Japan and China although it has developed its own specific artistic language. The aim of five art works and documentaries to be screened in 2015 is to introduce leading Korean artists and their thought-provoking recent art works.

Okin Collective is a group of artists, named after Okin-Dong site in Jongno-Gu, which was subject to redevelopment and gradual demolition and, consequently, inspired artists’ first group project in 2009. Since its inauguration, Okin Collective has actively explored the ever-changing urban space through artistic interventions and socially engaged art at the interface between everyday life and art. The main issues that Okin Collective investigates range from the individual survival to the impact of global capitalism across the borders. In 2010, the Collective also engaged with a form of ‘guerrilla broadcasting’, the Okin Internet Radio [STUDIO+82] (http://okin.cc/radio/index.html) was launched to make the voices of their related communities to be heard.

KAREL MALICH & FEDERICO DÍAZ

HALL

Curated by Petr Rehor & Esko Nummelin

Karel Malich has worked since the end of 1950´s, dealing with the landscape and the cosmos. Drawings, sketched by only few lines, abstract material collages and complex filigree sculptures of wire demonstrate his constant examination of existential phenomena. Malich has functioned as Federico Díaz´s teacher and mentor. Since the 1990´s, Díaz has used new media to reveal immaterial aspects of everyday reality of our natural environment, which are elusive through primary human sences. Díaz´s work is typified by the language of algorithmically-generated art and systems art, which states that art is created without the touch of the
human hand. In collaboration with: Galerie Zdenĕk Sklenář

THE BALTIC SEA – FLOATING TRUNKS UMEÅ, RIGA, PORI
[11.07.2014 - 28.09.2014]

UMEÅ, RIGA, PORI

Artist duo Simka connects young people with established art in the creation of a work of art for the Pori Art Museum as well to the Cultural Capitals Umeå and Riga.

Key components of the project is the exchange of experiences and expectations along with following up and to work together within an artistic process. The trees are processed and sculpted in workshop format led by the artists. After the workshop the artwork will be launched outside the art museum, where they form a large floating grove of trees.

Floating living trees located on lifebuoys out on the water. The installation is centrally located in each of the three cities. It gives an organic impression that evokes thoughts of man, the water and the trees strength, value, earlier as now, here joined in an unexpected way. The natural elements challenge with and against each other. Lifebuoys (frälsarkransarna sv./ eng. salvationrings) are associated with humans and the maritime dimension in travel and escape.

Baltic Sea - Floating Trunks wants with the cooperation around the artwork to unite local forces - the trees, the water and the residents in a larger perspective of the Baltic Sea and its cultural community. Seeing the Baltic Sea as a common elastic, floating continent. That both unites and divides.

When the trees are brought up on land after the summer, they’ll be placed into a citypark to take root. This provides a long term aspect of the artwork: offering the co-creators an obvious place and part of the city. Baltic Sea- Floating Trunks becomes with its location a link between the river and the sea which leads on to an international context.

Baltic Sea – Floating Trunks


Konstnärsduon SIMKA skapar möten mellan unga människor och den etablerade konsten i framtagningen av ett konstverk för Pori Art Museum i Björneborg samt till Kulturhuvudstäderna Umeå och Riga.
Centrala delar av projektet är utbyte av erfarenheter och förväntningar, jämte att följa upp och arbeta med det i en konstnärlig process. Träden kommer att bearbetas och skulpteras på i workshop-form ledda av konstnärerna. Efter workshopen sjösätts verket där de bildar en större flytande dunge.

Flytande levande träd placerade på livbojar på vattnet vid museet. Verket står centralt placerat i var och en av de tre städerna. Det utgör ett organiskt blickfång som väcker tankar om människans, vattnets och trädens styrka, värde, då som nu, här förenade på ett oväntat sätt. Elementen för en kamp med och mot varandra. Livbojarna eller frälsarkransarna ger en association till människan och den marina dimensionen i resandet och flykten.

Baltic Sea – Floating Trunks vill i samarbetet kring konstverket förena lokala krafter– träden, vattnet och invånarna i ett större perspektiv över Östersjön och dess kulturella gemenskap. Att se på Östersjön som en gemensam elastisk, flytande kontinent. Som både förenar och skiljer.
När träden efter sommaren bärgas, placeras de ut i stadens grönområde för att rota sig. Detta ger en långsiktig aspekt av konstverket: medskaparnas självklara plats i stadsrummet. Baltic Sea –Floating trunks blir med sin placering en länk mellan älven och havet som leder vidare i ett internationell sammanhang.

Dessutom bidrar ett avslutande seminarium och en antologi över projektet till möjlighet att samla och utveckla erfarenheterna för framtida kommunikation.

Flowers and plants were popular motifs in art already in the classical period. Bringing flowers as a present is an ancient tradition; flowers can express love, apology, or congratulation for an achievement. Flowers have their own refined language that, in our times, has been almost forgotten. In fine art, flower paintings emerged as a genre in the late 16th Century, and The Netherlands became the centre of the flower and still life style in the 17th Century. Artists would specialize in different motifs, and flower and fruit painters were the most well-known ones. The still lives were often very symbolic and reminded the viewer of the transience of life.

The film is focusing on the recently concluded trial of François Bazaramba, a Rwandan citizen who sought asylum in Finland in 2003, where he was convicted nine years later for his role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. In a bizarre geographical inversion, the Finnish trial took place from 2009 to 2010 in improvised courts in Rwanda and Tanzania, with the legal proceedings transmitted to and from Bazaramba’s Helsinki prison cell via Skype and other videoconferencing technologies.

The exhibition “Dystotal” positions itself in between the dialectic relation of utopian visions and dystopian scenarios. Starting from artists like Malevich, Mondrian and the Bauhaus the entitled radicalness of the modernistic language will be analysed on one hand side. And on the other hand side it will be confronted with its own downside and failure.

The architect of the museum building of Pori Art Museum, the colleagues and the collections of the colleagues meet – mainly Finnish and Nordic contemporary art, as well as works by French modernists. At the central point of the exhibition are those tensions that arise from the relationship between the art of the public room – the museum room – and private art, that suits well in a home. Our aim is to investigate the architectonical questions that emerge as a result of this.

EAST ASIAN VIDEO FRAMES
[01.02.2013 - 18.01.2015]



Curator: Minna Valjakka

In 2014, the three-year video project focuses on the varying modes of contemporary art emerging in Tokyo— both in and outside of the art institutions. Since the end of the 1980s the forms of contemporary graffiti and street art have started to occupy the public space in Tokyo. Although the original inspiration derived from the styles of New York graffiti, the local creators have actively developed indigenous forms of expression and composed a vigorous, versatile urban art scene. During the spring, the series explores how does the local graffiti writers and artists feel about the scene in Tokyo? And how one of the youngest art communities, the local branch of the international movement, Free Art Friday Tokyo, established in the spring 2013, interacts with the scene?

After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011, Japanese artists were shaken and puzzled - also about what art and artists could do. The first art work of this set, screened until 23 November, was created as a response. Chim↑Pom, an artist collective of six young Tokyoites, known for their unconventional art and exhibitions related to various social issues, decided to do
their bit. In order to raise solidarity, Chim↑Pom travelled to the disaster area. One of the results, a two-channel video art work “KI-AI 100” (2011) was created in co-operation with the Soma city’s youth. In the process, the shouting of improvised sentences one after another fostered a spirit of positive interaction and collaboration, in the vein of the short shouts (ki-ai) made in Japanese martial arts before or during the technique. The form is different, but the outcome of the “KI-AI
100” is similar: it startles the viewer, appals even, but also strengthens the fighting spirit to overcome the incomprehensible.

The second video art work of the autumn, screened from 25 November, captivates with a very different atmosphere. In his recent one-channel video art work “WAVY” (2014), MIYANAGA Akira (b. 1985), a young artist from Hokkaido but based in Kyoto, reveals the repetitions inherent to humanity, nature, society and urban life in various locations in Japan, including Tokyo. The
origin of this conceptual art work derives from the multilayered interconnections of Japanese words that include homonym “NAMI” written in two different kanji (並 / 波) and meaning, for instance, a line or row of things/ people, or a wave. The similar notion of recurrence can be found in English word “WAVY”. Relying on the visual poetry such as transparent layers, MIYANAGA leads and leaves us to think what being a human means in the changing scenes and acoustic worlds of Japanese society today.

Curated by Pia Hovi-Assad


Felice Varini creates geometric perspective-localized works in indoor and outdoor spaces. The works are characterized by one vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete piece, while from other view points the viewer will see fragmented shapes. Varini’s art plays with concepts of scale, proportion, and perception. While abstract and conceptual, his three-dimensional wall works are also concrete and material. The viewer experiences them from within; as he/she moves through the architectural space, new discoveries are made at every step.

The exhibition brings together artists from different generations whose works contain stylistic features familiar from surrealism. The unrestrained power of the paintings by Jyrki Riekki wells up from the deep recesses of the human unconscious. By juxtaposing deformations, different materials and fragments of objects, he creates a surprising world that may sometimes seem disconcerting to the contemporary viewer.

The art museum will be taken over by Jarmo Mäkilä’s new installations, sculptures and paintings: a group of boys romping about making mischief, searching for their adulthood and growing a shield against the world. These rites of initiation involve risks. The world of young boys is tinged by violence, most relevantly the threat of violence. Their reality is made of subjugation and submission. The happiness of childhood is a taboo one is forbidden to question. On the way to the world of small boys, to the twilight zone between dream and wakefulness, the viewers encounter the artist and also their own memories of childhood and youth.

For the painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) music was a source of inspiration. He loved dancing, and often the rhythms of music and dance found their way into his paintings. One of his most famous paintings is Broadway Boogie-Woogie. Artist Sándor Vály and composed-musician Éva Polgár have notated Mondrian’s paintings, creating an audiovisual work from them. The premiere of the work will be performed at the Pori Art Museum in May 2012. The composition will be interpreted by Éva Polgár on the piano and artist Sándor Vály on the sampler.

OP – POP – POST. THE MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM SERIES
[10.02.2012 - 27.05.2012]

PROJECT ROOM

Op Art creates optical illusions of vibrant movement with abstract forms and the juxtaposition of colours. It had a considerable influence on the imagery in popular culture, such as fashion and album covers. Pop Art broke boundaries between art and popular culture and pioneered many phenomena in contemporary art. Post-modern attitude broke even the last boundaries of art. It is characterized by irony, play and allusions to the history of art. The works in the exhibition are selected from the collections of the Pori Art Museum.

MATTI KUJASALO
[30.09.2011 - 15.01.2012]

HALL, LOBBY

Matti Kujasalo has said that the purpose of a painting is to raise questions and experiences in the viewer. One of the internationally best-known artists in Finland, Kujasalo has in the course of more than four decades systematically developed his thinking based on constructivist art. He has built a visual grammar with its own particular rules. It is at once sensitive and powerfully expressive, mercilessly logical and startlingly full of surprises.

THE MESSIANIC RESEARCH CENTRE FOR VISUAL ETHICS (MRCVE) AND JOHNNY AMORE
7 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 – ACCUMMULATING VALUE -performance
[01.10.2010 - 01.10.2010]



In February 2010, the Messianic Research Centre for Visual Ethics (MRCVE) and Johnny Amore conducted in Germany and the Netherlands a series of performances entitled 7 For The Price Of 1. Presented in the form of a shopping trip, the tour travelled from Berlin to Rotterdam, acquiring seven performative actualisations along the way.

Deconstructing trade and the mechanisms of the economy, the project will culminate at the Pori Art Museum, presenting a summary of the results gained with the methods of performative economic research.

Just like the earlier works of MRCVE and Johnny Amore, the current project was not merely a series of performances, but an opportunity to collect research data for further refinement and to test in practice the premises raised by theoretical research.

The aim of the performances was to increase the apportioned capital of the project, because the easy market criticism of the economically oriented contemporary reality clearly needed to be complemented with objective research that would give reality an opportunity to argue its logic.

In connection with the performance the Messianic Research Centre for Visual Ethics (MRCVE) and Johnny Amore will publish a publication, which has been produced in cooperation with Satakunta University of Applied Sciences/performance studies, Finnish Fund For Art Exchange FRAME and Pori Art Museum.

WHY DO YOU RESIST?
FORMS OF RESISTANCE IN CONTEMPORARY ART
[11.06.2010 - 05.09.2010]

Hall/Wing/Entrance hall

Zbynek Baladran (CZE), Rebecca Bournigault (FRA), Thomas Galler (CH), Ion Grigorescu (ROU), Fabrice Gygi (CH), Thomas Hirschhorn (CH), IC-98 (FIN),Alexey Kallima (RUS), Jiri Kovanda (CZE), Martin Krenn (AUT), Kristina Leko (CRO), Lucas Lenglet (NED), Jérôme Leuba (CH), Gintaras Makarevicius (LTU), Bettina Pousttchi (GER), Oliver Ressler (AUT), Slaven Tolj (CRO), Mona Vatamanu (ROU) & Florin Tudor (CH), Costa Vece (CH)

The younger generation of artists has in recent years once again begun to analyse the structures of power, while discussion of the forms of resistance has become one of the main themes of artistic practice. But what does power mean to this generation? Many artists focus on governmental power and its systems, and on political trends on a more general level, but also on the effects of globalisation, racist beliefs and the reality of migration. Artists are interested in how such issues are addressed by governments or the bodies of the European Union, how they wield power that they only understand as an administrative instrument. The WHY DO YOU RESIST? exhibition focuses on works from the topical field of international contemporary art, works that use available media with the purpose of making visible control mechanisms,structures of power and representation.
Curators: Andrea Domesle, Michal Kolecek

INTELLIGENCE AND EMOTION IN BALANCE. HAUTALA – KIVIJÄRVI – OSIPOW
MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM SERIES
[29.05.2010 - 05.09.2010]

Project Room

Painters Jorma Hautala and Paul Osipow and sculptor Harry Kivijärvi have for decades been among the greatest luminaries in Finnish art. The latest in the Maire Gullichsen and Modernism exhibition series, INTELLIGENCE AND EMOTION IN BALANCE has its thematic focus in art that does not aim to create images. The underlying philosophy is that art should refrain from all figurative aspects that refer to things external to itself.

BARE HOUSE. Pori - Rotterdam - Ulaanbaatar is an international exhibition and publication project that comments on the built environment, refl ecting upon the past and present ideals of modern society through Western welfare states and the Developing World. The project focuses especially on architecture and the dimensions of personal existence. Modernisation with its belief in prefabricated construction and standards is challenged by the potential for autonomous construction. The artists and architects featured in the exhibition come from Finland, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada and Mongolia. Most of the works in the show were created during artist residencies in Mongolia, the Netherlands and Pori.
Curator: Annu Wilenius.

LARS BREUER, SEBASTIAN FREYTAG AND GUIDO MÜNCH
MASTERCOPY
[16.04.2010 - 30.05.2010]

Wing, Mediapoint, Sculpture garden (.5.)

Lars Breuer, Sebastian Freytag and Guido Münch share an interest in various artistic ideologies and movements, such as early 20th-century avantgarde and its successors, the art trends of the Sixties, Minimalism and Conceptual Art. The motto of the group is taken from the Russian avantgarde artist Varvara Stepanova: "Study and know the old, but create the new." KONSORTIUM artists are autonomous but the collaborative work and installations give them a chance to react to the form and content of another’s work. This approach produces various kinds of interesting contrasts and contradictions between their works. KONSORTIUM artists have one thing in common: they each copy their respective historical sources while at the same time contesting both their meaning and its significance for the group’s overall artistic practice. By moving between the original and the copy, between the pattern and its actualisation, between personal ´handwriting´ and digital print, KONSORTIUM investigates the place of art in the field of globalising culture.

COVER VERSION
[16.04.2010 - 23.05.2010]

Project Room

The KONSORTIUM artists Lars Breuer, Sebastian Freytag and Guido Münch have created an exhibition entitled Cover Version. The piece consists of works from the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation and works by members of the KONSORTIUM.

The curated selection includes Unto Pusa’s Ympyrä neliössä (Hommage a Delaunay II) [Circle in a square (Hommage a Delaunay II)], Sam Vanni´s graphic series Neljän värin etydejä I-VIII [Four Colour Etudes I-VIII] and a painting by Lars-Gunnar Nordström, Dimensionaalinen tilanne [Dimensional Situation], on which the KONSORTIUM artists have then commented through their own works.


The title Cover Version is an allusion to the practice of creating new versions of existing songs in pop music. Cover Version is a vehicle for the KONSORTIUM artists to reflect upon influences and connections to the history of art – in particular to the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation.

[12.02.2010 - 30.05.2010]

More Than Life! continues the Collector´s Eye exhibition series in the Pori Art Museum by presenting works from the collections of Lars Johnsson. The collection opens up perspectives on the tradition of Finnish and Scandinavian Modernism as well as the field of contemporary art. The collector´s personal and intellectual approach, one that is no stranger to powerful emotion either, delineates a subtle area in art that is informed by Nordic constructivist abstraction and the tradition of colour painting.

MARGARITA ANDREU
ENTREVEURE / VIEWER
The gesture of the image
[12.02.2010 - 04.04.2010]

Wing, Mediapoint

Espanjalainen kuvataiteilija Margarita Andreu (s. 1953) on syntynyt Kataloniassa, Cercsissä, joka on Barcelonan provinssi. Barcelona on toiminut hänen keskuksenaan. Sieltä käsin Andreu on tehnyt tutkimusmatkoja lähiympäristöön sekä maailman eri suurkaupunkeihin, tallentaen
mm. rakennusten julkisivuja, rakenteita ja arkkitehtonisia yksityiskohtia. Margarita Andreu haluaa houkutella ihmiset havainnoimaan uudella tavalla ympäristöään.
Hän tutkii valokuvan ja videon avulla valon, värin ja pinnan suhdetta. Hän kiinnittää huomionsa arkkitehtoniseen tilaan, sen fyysisiin vaikutuksiin ja siihen, miten se heijastuu ihmisen sosiaalisiin suhteisiin.

SCULPTURE!
Educational exhibition in the Maire Gullichsen and Modernism series
[12.02.2010 - 04.04.2010]



Artists featured in the exhibition are Gunnar Elfgren, Laila Pullinen, Kimmo Pyykkö, Sakari Tohka

Sculptures in bronze, iron or stone are by their very nature permanent. The sense of timelessness and immutability is only intensified by the idea of sculptures resting in the bosom of a museum in carefully regulated conditions. The Sculpture! exhibition investigates the solidity of the link between artworks and the ideas and ideologies of their time. Can present-day audiences approach artworks of past decades with the same freshness as contemporaries did, when the works engaged in the art discourse of their time by either challenging or confirming the then prevalent ideas and attitudes? Can features which challenged the taste of the age or enjoyed general acceptance still touch us in the same way? Does an artwork change because we are different?

UNDER THE SKY AND OVER THE SEA
ZINEB SEDIRA
[16.10.2009 - 31.01.2010]

Hall, Wing, Hall, Entrance hall

Zineb Sedira (b. 1963 in Paris, France) is a London-based artist who works in multicultural cities and on three different continents. She was born in Paris to Algerian parents. Through a combination of documentary tradition and Algerian and French contemporary cinema, Sedira´s work examines the flow of immigration from North Africa to Europe. Using video, short film and photography as her media, Sedira investigates the process whereby immigrants abandon the framework of their original culture and start to build a new identity. An identity which demands that they assimilate a new culture and its language. Zineb Sedira´s personal history and her autobiographical images are transformed into a universal experience that raises economic, ecological, geopolitical and global questions.

Sedira´s works embody the powerful oral tradition of storytelling in Arab culture and the characteristic role of women in North Africa as those who pass family stories on to the next generation.

Appearing for the first time in Finland, Sedira brings to the Pori Art Museum short films, photographs and video works.

A WALK IN THE CITY AT NIGHT
AN EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITION IN THE MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM SERIES.
[16.10.2009 - 31.01.2010]

Project room

An educational exhibition in the Maire Gullichsen and Modernism series.

A Walk in the City at Night is a journey of exploration into the collections of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation. The paintings and sculptures on view tell the story of a walk through the city and its outskirts at night. The common theme uniting the works is the study of light and dark. The works are interpreted by children, who comment on them and develop their themes further. The journey across the city is a mysterious one. The orange, red and deepening blue tones of the setting sun give way to the electric lights and neons lighting up the night. The paintings are the result of a workshop that encouraged children to immerse themselves in the works, to explore and interpret them freely.

LIFELINES
BOB VERSCHUEREN
[12.06.2009 - 27.09.2009]

HALL, WING, MEDIApoint, Sculpture Yard, Entrance hall

The Belgian artist Bob Verschueren is known for his wind and light paintings that he has been making since 1978, but also for vegetable installations that make use of organic, natural materials and which have been the dominant aspect of his work since the mid-1980s. In creating his works, Verschueren always respects nature, listening to the inherent qualities of his material – as if the works were created under the direction of nature herself.

For his show in the Pori Art Museum, Verschueren will create installations from organic materials in the main exhibition hall and the wing. The works are reflections upon the cycle of nature in its changing forms of geometry, colour and materials. Verschueren will create the works using organic waste collected from Pori and nearby areas.

The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the City of Pori Park Maintenance Department.

THE SITE OF PAINTING
[13.02.2009 - 31.05.2009]

HALL, WING, MEDIApoint, Sculpture Yard

What is the status of painting in the field of art in the 2000s? The Site of Painting charts the development of painting and the modernist tradition in Finnish contemporary art. Starting from the 1960s, the tradition of international conceptual art and minimalism declared the demise of painting. Painting in general, structural abstract painting in particular, has enjoyed a central, canonised status in Finnish art. Modernism was channelled into non-figurative painting. Postmodern art theory arrived in Finland in the 1980s, and the artforms that had previously been marginal or "new" became mainstream, such as conceptual and environmental art, performance and installation art. This was also reflected in the status of painting.

The artists in the exhibition are Terike Haapoja, Toni Hautamäki, Terhi Heino, Aino Kannisto, Jouni Kujansuu, Jaakko Niemelä, Jussi Niva, Miika Nyyssönen, Tarja Pitkänen-Walter, Anssi Pulkkinen, Jukka Rusanen and Tatu Tuominen.

PROJECT ROOM

Maire Gullichsen and Modernism series

The sculptor Kain Tapper (6 June 1930 – 7 August 2004) was from the 1950s popularly known as a nature lyricist, a Pantheist whose art was down-to-earth and aspired to balance, According to Tapper himself, he thought with a pen, by drawing. But he was first and foremost a sculptor, whose work was characterised by an abstract idiom, a subtle dialogue between the shape of the piece and its material.

The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation.

UNTO PUSA - THE MONUMENTALITY AND COSMIC SHAPES OF FIGURE
[10.10.2008 - 01.02.2009]

PROJECT ROOM

The Maire Gullichsen and Modernism series

Exact and geometric shapes are admired, but only an attentive and sensitive interpreter can give geometrical shapes rhythmically expressive life. Creative art is not limp aesthetics or secretively mumbling enthusiasm. All art is living dynamics, creating and shaping its own environment. So wrote Unto Pusa in his class book Plastillinen sommittelu (Plastic Composition), in which he also discussed the limitations to the teaching of art.

The exhibition The Monumentality and Cosmic Shapes of Figure reviews the oeuvre of Unto Pusa, art theorist and master of Finnish monumental painting, through the thematics of the Three Graces, which is typical of Pusa’s art.

In collaboration with: the South Karelia Art Museum, Lappeenranta, the Helsinki City Art Museum and the Aine Art Museum, Tornio.

‘LIGHTSHADOWCOMPLEX’
MISCHA KUBALL
[10.10.2008 - 01.02.2009]

HALL, WING, HALL, ENTRANCE HALL

The autumn season at Pori Art Museum opens with the exhibition by German media and light artist, Mischa Kuball (b. 1959), a professor at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. For over 20 years, Kuball has been studying light and the possibilities of using it in various forms, and LightShadowComplex will be his first exhibition in Finland. Kuball is well known for his works for which he reshapes built environments and spaces using light. In 1990, for instance, for his six-week-long project Megazeichen (Megasigns) he directed, after office hours, all the lights on the floors of a skyscraper in Düsseldorf, decorating the cityscape with huge symbols that with mathematical precision were continually changing.

At the Pori Art Museum, Kuball combines light with numbers and letters to build a work that unsettles both the viewer’s ability to interpret shapes and his sense of balance.

To accompany the exhibition the artist’s work is also presented in a large publication, Mischa Kuball ...in progress, Projects 1980–2007, which will be on sale at the Pori Art Museum shop.

The organisations collaborating on this exhibition include: the Kunstverein Hannover, the Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Art, the Beijing Royal Art Museum, the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art and the Centre d’Art Contemporain Passerelle, Brest.

Kuball’s space-exploring works will be built at the Hall, Wing and Lobby of the Pori Art Museum.

BEAUTY OF EVERYDAY – MAIRE GULLICHSEN 100 YEARS, ARTEK JUBILEE EXHIBITION IN PORI ART MUSEUM
[06.06.2008 - 28.09.2008]

PROJECT ROOM

The exhibition is part of the Maire Gullichsen and Modernism series.

Press is invited to the museum on Thursday, 5 June, at 11–13, information meeting will be on Friday, 6 June, at 12.00. The exhibition architect Kirsi Gullichsen and managing director Mirkku Kullberg will be present.

The year 2007 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Professor Maire Gullichsen. Maire Gullichsen founded Artek Oy in 1935 together with Aino Aalto, Alvar Aalto and Nils-Gustav Hahl. She lived longest of the founders. After Hahl was killed in battle Hankoniemi in 1941 and Aino Aalto died in 1949, Maire kept the original spark of Artek alive up to her death, building a solid foundation for the future of Artek. Artek paid homage to her life´s work with a jubilee exhibition BEAUTY OF EVERYDAY which will be presented at the Pori Art Museum in a more compact version.

Maire Gullichsen was also founder of the Free Art School, the exhibition organisation Nykytaideyhdistys (Association for Contemporary Art) and she established Galerie Artek from exhibitions held in the Artek store. Modern and abstract art was introduced to Finland by her. It was not a long step from art to design. Maire believed that the harmony of colours and forms could be used to enhance everyday life, make homes more pleasant and their occupants happier. She believed that beauty was democratic and that it could be attained by simple means. She wanted Artek to sell only exemplary products, and took an active role in the selection of goods for the shop.

The exhibition seeks to shed light on the ideas, activities and achievements of Maire Gullichsen from the perspectives of aesthetics, ethics and democracy, and to tell about Modernism, the movement that lay close to the heart of Artek and its founders. The exhibition is realised by the architect Kirsi Gullichsen and the exhibition team at Artek. Exhibition texts are written by the art historian Helena Woirhaye.

Artek will bring to the museum store a range of glass objects designed by Maire Gullichsen as well as other products selected by Maire for the Artek collection. Kitchen textiles made of the Siena fabric designed by Alvar Aalto and French garden furniture made of wood slats represent practical beauty in everyday life.

HALL, WING


The exhibition Phenomena at the Pori Art Museum showcases artists from five different countries. The aim of the exhibition as well as the exhibition publication is to discuss and question a number of phenomena in affluent societies today. The phenomena can be as simple as light, seeing, hearing or as complex as morality, nature or youth. It is characteristic of our time that we have to learn to accept change, but there is also the dichotomy of the importance of national identity and the need for cosmopolitan thinking and global tolerance. People in the welfare societies of the Nordic countries find themselves in a conflict between the Third World on one hand and overflowing wealth on the other.
Many questions are being asked. How are we to handle all the phenomena that spring from global warming, new technology and increasing poverty? There is also a lack of understanding of the changes that are taking place in the present. Often enough, seeing things at a close distance is more difficult than being open-minded. We want to know what is happening in our world, but at the same time we struggle with the guilt of our own ineptness. The Phenomena exhibition gives the audience an invisible magnifying glass with which to observe the phenomena around them as well as the effects of those phenomena from various distances.

UNTO PUSA - CUBISM AND NATIONAL ILLUSTRATION - MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM
[15.02.2008 - 25.05.2008]

PROJECT ROOM

Unto Pusa painted his first cubist work entitled Katunäkymä (Street View) in 1949. The painting is also known as Cubist Chevreuse. Pusa had worked in the small town near Paris for a decade and a half, painting canvases in the style of Cézanne, as miniature worlds free of any illusion. For Pusa, Cézanne´s art was not just about the stylistic simplification of form. At its core was an effort to understand the thinking that went into the composition of a painting. In the late 1940s, Pusa visited Fernand Léger’s retrospective in Paris. It made an enduring impression on him. He came to understand that all forms within a composition are equal such that the choice of subject matter no longer occupies a dominant position.

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

HALL, WING, PROJECT ROOM, MEDIApoint

” 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.

IC-98, THESES ON THE BODY POLITIC
Visa Suonpää and Patrik Söderlund
[30.03.2007 - 20.05.2007]

MEDIApoint


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.

[10.11.2006 - 07.01.2007]

Wing

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.

‘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.

COLLECTORS EYE
[08.09.2006 - 07.01.2007]

Hall

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.

"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.

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.

[27.01.2006 - 28.05.2006]

HALL, PROJECT ROOM

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.

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.

From Drawing to Painting to Drawing offers the public an opportunity to get to know the work of American artist Jonathan Lasker. The parameters of art have expanded as developments in photography, video and multimedia have redefined the role of traditional fine art techniques. With the advent of new technology, and the tools it offers for artistic expression, there is renewed interest in the relationship between space, surface, and the expression inherent in line. In this exhibition the emphasis is on drawing. The starting point is drawing as an independent art form and its role in painting.

For some years now, the Belgian artist and historian Koen Broucke has been studying the lives of certain famous and forgotten artists, including composers and writers. Liszt-Broucke, Our Travelling Circus Life, Ode to Megalomania is a painting and video art installation based on a series of documented performances given by Broucke on valuable grand pianos in different parts of Central Europe. Broucke painted a series of pictures based on the documentary footage and used these paintings in the creation of his installation. In his piano performances, Broucke imitates the manners of Franz Liszt. The exhibition makes a humorous comment on the myth of the Romantic Artist.

Like a prism, Letters from Nowhere reveals the many facets of human ideals and goals, tensions between society and individual and the role of thinking in this process. The theme is addressed visually through a single, ordinary event. What we understand, how we read reality and what happens to documents when they are moved from their original context into a new one. What happens to people, what happens to memories and how stories are renewed as they are retold again and again. The book, published in conjunction with the exhibition, includes articles by Kimmo Sarje, Ph.D., artist and critic; Pertti Lindfors, Ph.D., Docent; Hannu Eerikäinen, media researcher; Pekka Sutela, Docent; Vesa Oittinen, Docent; Raimo Lovio, professor; and Kati Mustola, researcher.

Black Butterfly. Kiba Lumberg (b. 1956 in Lappeenranta) is known in Finland as a keen observer of the ethnic and cultural dimensions of her own Romani background. Both a writer and an artist, Lumberg characteristically explores the roles of women in her exuberant work. Focusing on one artist, the show extends the overall picture of the Samaa maata – Side by side project and exhibition, produced in 1997 by the Pori Art Museum, that explored ethnic minorities in Finland from the perspective of art. A book with text in Finnish and English is published in conjunction with the exhibition, with articles by Sirkku Dölle, Keeper in the National Museum of Finland; Leena Eräsaari, Ph.D., professor; Leena-Maija Rossi, Ph.D., researcher and critic; and Matti Salakka, MA, media researcher.

MG 05. THEME
[09.02.2005 - 29.05.2005]

PROJECT ROOM

Finnish Modernism. From colour theory to problematics of the pictorial surface.

MEDIA RELEASE:

MG 05.THEME
Finnish modernism. From a colour theoretical approach to problematics of surface and plasticity.

The MG 05.THEME exhibition focuses on one of the most prominent artists and theoreticians of post-war modernism in Finland, Ahti Lavonen (1928-1970). Known as a master of informalism, Lavonen is also included in the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation, a collection whose relation to informalism has traditionally been perceived as detached or even opposite.

The breakthrough of abstract art took place in Finland only after the wars, although influences from such artists as Cézanne and Kandinsky were present almost half a century earlier. In the late fifties, concretism, the “hard edge” abstract art was paralleled with a softer and more lyrical approach, which made informalism as the mainstream of nonfigurative art both in Finland and in Europe.

As Erik Kruskopf noted, informalism did not appeal to Maire Gullichsen – no matter how popular it became in Finland in the early sixties. The main focus of the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation at the Pori Art Museum is on abstract art elucidating the phenomena and examining the problematics of the basic surface elements, shape and colour. The Finnish core of the collection consists of works exploring plastic form by teachers and students of the Free Art School founded in 1935, and art reflecting the ideas of Galleria Artek.

In the early sixties informalists had to justify their artistic notions in the same way as concretists had done in the previous decade when the general public still missed figurative images. Ahti Lavonen, who became one of the leaders of his generation, evolved into an extraordinarily eloquent artist, who boldly expressed his views on timely issues in art.

Ahti Lavonen was not interested in painting with spontaneous gestures typical of informalism but specialised in studying the expressive potentials of materials. Stressing the spiritual values of the school and avoiding motion in the picture surface, Lavonen pursued harmony and peace, a meditative emptiness, a “pause”.

On Maire Gullichsen’s initiative, a memorial exhibition was arranged at Galleria Artek after Ahti Lavonen’s death with works from the years 1966 – 1970. The MG 05. THEME exhibition is built around Ahti Lavonen’s works belonging to the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation, completed with works from the Art collection of the city of Pori and deposit collections of Pori Art Museum.

MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM I

MEDIApoint

Small-scale exhibition from the collections of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation.

MEDIA RELEASE:

MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISM I
Aiming at dynamic balance - UNTO PUSA

The MAIRE GULLICHSEN AND MODERNISMI I- exhibition presents to us Unto Pusa (1913-1973), one of the most prominent masters and theoreticians of Finnish modernism. For Unto Pusa the idea of the painting was central; it came before the realisation of the work. The subject had to be seen and experienced before starting to paint. The artist’s task was not to reproduce nature but to create something that was as beautiful as nature itself.

”Like many of my contemporaries, I was prevented from going to the Mecca of painters by my years of military service. Only this September and October I had the opportunity to visit Paris ” wrote Unto Pusa about his three-week trip to France in 1948. Already the next year the dream itself came true – a year’s stay and studies at the undisputed centre of modern art. In Paris Pusa first studied in the academy of André Lhote and after that with Fernand Legér. Many Nordic artists had at that time found their way to the teachings of Lhote, who was known as a champion of intellectual art. Pusa had also encountered Legér’s art, for example, during his first trip to Paris one year earlier.

Fernand Legér’s radiant personality, absolute skill and confidence had created a master whose doctrines and thinking Pusa started to explore in his own work. Apart from his actual studies, Pusa was also greatly impressed by the marked role of tradition in French art. Every artist adds his own new contribution to the long chain of art.

Like Maire Gullichsen, Unto Pusa left to Paris with his eyes open and receptive to new impressions. He found kindred spirits in the town and repeated the trip often – Pusa visited Paris a total of about twenty times. He found that his mission was to champion for new art and to relay his impressions and learning to Finland. Pusa was very familiar with both the pioneering theories of Paul Cézanne and Wassily Kandinsky and the ideas of the cubists as well as the Aprés le Cubisme manifesto. He also saw how the avant-garde trends of the 20th century joined in the tradition and long continuum of art. As a teacher at the Free Art School and at the Department of Architecture in the University of Technology he for his part promoted these ideas by publishing his well-known textbooks ”Plastillinen sommittelu” (Plastic composition) and ”Väri-Muoto-Tila” (Colour-Shape-Space). Pusa was also a natural member of the Prisma artist group founded in 1956, which drew influences from France.

***
Unto Pusa is represented in the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation by five artworks. The paintings of the miniature exhibition give an idea of the development of Pusa’s art from the early 1950’s into the next decade.

FROM CUBISM TO CONCRETISM
[01.12.2004 - 30.01.2005]

WING

Early Norwegian avant-garde.

In the artist’s work, the avant-garde art of the early 20th century denoted the replacement of the line by the analysis of the meaning of the surface and the plane. In the last century, Norwegian nonfigurative art had two heydays. In the 1920s and 1930s Norwegian artists got to know Cubism and Purism in Paris. In the 1950s and 1960s Norwegian art rose from the ruins of World War II. Ragnhild Kaarbø (1888-1949), Ragnhild Keyser (1889-1943) and Charlotte Wankel (1888-1969) can be regarded as the first Norwegian cubists, pioneers of nonfigurative art. The post-war geometric school of art is represented by Gunnar S. Gundersen (1921-1983) and Jakob Weidemann (1923-2001).

In Tom Osmonen’s (born 1962) wallpaper collages evil disguises itself in the form of beauty. The wallpaper in the works represents phrases used to justify and euphemise such things as political evil. At the same time, the wallpaper reminds us of the evil within, inside the four walls of home, the genetically built-in component in every one of us.

MEDIA RELEASE:

Pori Art Museum presents in its spring exhibition, “MG04. Space – Surface.”, the guidelines of Finnish post-war modernism and the theory-based thinking that reflects the role of pictorial surface and colour.

According to the painter and theorist Unto Pusa (1913-1973), art is a dynamic that creates its own environment. One of the most significant figures of Finnish modernism referred in his statement to the changing role of painting in the 20th century. To him painting was no longer a window opening up the reality behind the canvas, as it was for a Renaissance painter. Painting was no longer an image projected onto a two-dimensional surface from a three-dimensional world in the same sense that Albrecht Dürer had taught in his book Underweysung der Messung in 1525. According to Pusa’s way of thinking the painter should study the elements of the pictorial surface and their relationships with the aim of finding a universal and independent language.

Timo Valjakka wrote in 1982 about Pekka Ryynänen’s art: “Painting advances according to its own conformities, synthesis and contrasts towards its own completion. An artist must remain faithful to his original concept- if that is lost, there will be no work of art at all.”

The MG04. Space - Surface exhibition examines the role of modernism and the thinking represented by Pusa in Finnish post-war fine art, and the collection of Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation’s role in Finnish fine arts and modern culture. Based on late Cubism and the concretism of the late 1950’s, the exhibition opens up in various directions ending with the colour theoretical questions of the Free Art School at the end of the 1970’s and beginning of the following decade. As well as Unto Pusa’s work, the exhibition presents works by Per Stenius, Sam Vanni, Juhana Blomstedt, Carolus Enckell, Tor Arne and Pekka Ryynänen. In addition, the exhibition includes the works from the Collection of Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation, and two works from the museum’s other collections.

ARCHITECTURE OF PICTURE
SAMI LUKKARINEN
[05.03.2004 - 23.05.2004]




The “Architecture of Picture” exhibition presents paintings by Sami Lukkarinen completed between the years 2001 - 2003. The starting point of the paintings is modernist Finnish church architecture and international functional architecture. The series is a continuation on Lukkarinen’s project examining the relationship between digital image and architecture.

The churches Lukkarinen has painted were built during the 1950’s and 1980’s and are located in the suburbs across Finland. The churches selected are stylistically and environmentally interesting and represent to Lukkarinen the highest quality of suburban architecture.

A central tool in Lukkarinen’s working process is the Photoshop software in which he chooses the image he will paint and composes it. Lukkarinen works on the image by reducing the information on it, making the pixels appear clearly. By increasing the pixels he renders visible the computer’s logic to calculate the colour information. In the final picture there are from 800 to 2000 pixels and hundreds of different colours. Lukkarinen seeks to copy the colours as separate pixels onto the canvas as accurately as possible. An important analogic element is present in his work through the shortcomings and errors of the process.

“I firmly believe that digital image and digitalisation offer new technical as well as contextual possibilities for painting. In my paintings the different colour systems of digital image and painting meet as well as their immateriality and materiality. In the final painting I seek to find a balance between modern architecture, digital image and oil painting”, explains Lukkarinen.


***
Sami Lukkarinen (born 1976 in Jyväskylä) graduated in 2001 from the Department of Media Studies, Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki. In connection with the exhibition, a catalogue ‘Modern Churches’, presenting Lukkarinen’s works is available from the bookshop.

THE 1930’S AND MAIRE GULLICHSEN
Yngve Bäck, Helene Schjerfbeck, Gunnar Elfgren
[05.03.2004 - 16.05.2004]

MEDIApoint


Maire Gullichsen’s role as a significant background figure and promoter of modernism in Finland is well known and the private home, Villa Mairea, with its art collections is internationally renowned. Pori Art Museum’s informative exhibition at MEDIApoint and senior lecturer Renja Suominen-Kokkonen’s research direct the viewer to the roots of the collection and to how the collection was born.

Helene Schjerfbeck’s painting, Self Portrait (1915-26), Magnus Enckell’s watercolour, Youth and Swan (1916), Wäinö Aaltonen’s, Song of My Heart (1932-34) and works by the teachers of the Free Art School such as Yngve Bäck’s, Märta in White (1933) and Torger Enckell’s, Still Life with Flowers (1934) form part of Maire Gullichsen’s early acquisitions. Villa Mairea ,completed in 1939, has received a lot of publicity. Art was acquired to the homes of Maire and Harry Gullichsen even before Villa Mairea. These works are not all ones that have usually been connected to Villa Mairea or ones that have been presented in connection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation’s Collections.

As senior lecturer, Renja Suominen-Kokkonen explains, the beginning of the Gullichsen family’s collection was primarily domestic. High-quality works were chosen for the collection from the very outset. The collection was also influenced by Maire Gullichsen’s own interest in art, the contacts with the Free Art School and the support of artists belonging to the school’s circle.

The 1930’s and Maire Gullichsen is the start of a series of exhibitions presenting the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundations Collection that will be continued in summer 2004 by an exhibition entitled ”Lars-Gunnar Nordström and Jazz’. In fall 2004 a related article by Renja Suominen-Kokkonen will be published in the art museum’s publication series.

An interest in the human – whether it is our physical or psychical nature – and an ability to transform the private into the public without it losing its fragile intimacy are characteristics of Ekström’s art. She uses organic materials, such as flowers, hair, gastropods or oysters to depict our exposure to life and death, and encounters with suffering and longing. Ekström will realize a new installation for the art museum.

FLIP. Pocket-sized stories

Flip-book is a pre-cinematic medium familiar to most of us. When a stack of sheets with succeeding phases of animation is flipped, an impression of moving image is created. The same principle is at work in cinema and is based on the principle of afterimage. Pori Art Museum has asked three artists – Johanna Antinkaapo, Adrianne Gallinari and Jenni Rope – to create their own flip-books. The books are then used as models for a workshop, which focuses on the production of animation with the same technique. The artists take part in the workshop, too.

Aapo Kustaa Korkeaoja
[12.05.2003 - 12.05.2003]




AQUARIO-TRILOGY
PART
”BIOLOGY- BIOLOGIA”

PERFORMANCE 12TH MAY 2003 AT 22.00 PM.


Aquario-trilogy is a final work by performance artist Aapo Kustaa Korkeaoja for his graduation from The Turku Art Academy. Korkeaoja has studied in an interdisciplinary and live art course, from which the first Nordic professionals in interdisciplinary arts will graduate the upcoming spring. Korkeaoja himself has concentrated in performance art using a variety of different mediums in his works. Aquario-trilogy is a part of “Last Escape” graduation show by the Crossing Borders class in Turku 5th –9th May 2003.

Aquario-trilogy’s parts ”Society-Yhteiskunta” (Turku, Titanik 5.5), “Biology-Biologia” (Pori, Art Museum 12.5) and ”Technology-Teknolgia” (Helsinki, Muu gallery 19.5) are all different examinations of life and connected to each other by the 2500-litre tank built by Korkeaoja as his peculiar performance infrastructure.

The part of the trilogy to be seen in Pori “Biology-Biologia” combines the traditional idea of a closed eco-system in an aquarium to the absurd liberty of choice that a human being has. Are we parts of the nature or detached as some kind of super natural beings?

The performance’s duration is approximately 30 minutes and the entrance is free. The performance takes place in front of the Pori Art Museum at the Kokemäenjoki riveride.

PHILOSOPHY OF MONTAGE, MONTAGE OF PHILOSOPHY
KIMMO SARJE
[09.04.2003 - 25.05.2003]



Kimmo Sarje (b. 1951) started his career as a conceptual artist in the mid 1980s questioning the symbols of the sublime of the two superpowers of the time, the Soviet Union and the United States. In his simple montages he painted Barnett Newman’s stripes on official Soviet Lenin posters. Sarje continued producing a series of shows and art projects in which he deconstructed Lenin cult and the ideology of Marxism-Leninism. A central issue in Sarje’s sots art is to juxtapose ideas and icons of Modernism and Socialism as he did, for example, in his series about Lenin and Kazimir Malevich. Sarje is also known for his multiple contacts with Russian and Baltic artists. When studying in the
Whitney Independent Study Program in New York 1986-87 Sarje became acquainted with the Russian emigrant sots artists Komar & Melamid who helped him to build contacts with the younger generation in Moscow.

The tradition of Modernism in Finland has also been one of the targets of Sarje’s work. To accept the conventions and hierarchies of the so called Nordic taste doesn’t respond to his critical standpoint. In a series of montage exhibitions in the late 1980s and early 1990s Sarje deconstructed the rhetoric of Alvar Aalto’s design by mixing parts of the architects’ original chairs and lamps plus his famous glass vases with the language of modernist painting and popular culture.

In the mid 1990s Sarje concentrated in the questions of the Finnish modernism before and after the First World War. He published a book about Sigurd Frosterus’ architecture and worldview. Frosterus was a leading rationalist modernist during the first decades of the 20th century in Finland. In Sarje’s “Dawn” exhibition 1999 in his photomontages he interpreted Frosterus’ aesthetics, too.

Questions about abstraction, decoration and monumental architecture have also been topics of Sarje’s art. In his New York -series as well as in his montages about Stalinist architecture he has mixed the dogmas of Modernist abstraction with classical architectural decoration. Cultural parallels are a stimulus of Sarje’s work. The analogues of Maya architecture in Mexico and the national socialist monumental architecture of Albert Speer in Nürnberg was a starting point of Sarje’s exhibition “Quo vadis monumentum?” in 1998.

Sarje is a member of two artist groups: Concept Konzert, a group of five Finnish conceptualists, and Elkida, a group of three Scandinavian artists. In many of his projects he has collaborated with his colleagues. For example, all his video works Sarje realized together with Kimmo Koskela, a well-known videoartist.

Kimmo Sarje works both as an artist and as an essayist and university teacher. He started his career in the mid 1970s as an art critic. He has published books about contemporary art and history of ideas in Finland. He wrote his academic theses about Sigurd Frosterus 2000. As an artist Sarje is self-taught, however, his work is well represented in many main art museums in Finland. His criticism and montages have been studied recently in two academic dissertations.

MAIRE GULLICHSEN ART FOUNDATION´S COLLECTION
[30.03.2003 - 24.08.2003]

HALL, WING, PROJECT ROOM

The Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation´s collection builds a picture of the Finnish modernism of the post war period and its international influences. The main emphasis in the collections is in the abstract and concretist art examining questions of form and colour. The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the Maire Gullichen Art Foundation.

AERNOUT MIK
[05.02.2003 - 30.03.2003]

HALL, WING

The works of the Dutch artist Aernout Mik (b.1962) combine sculptural elements, performance and the projected image. In his video installations Mik creates spatial situations in which an experience of real time interferes with film time. The moving images and three-dimensional elements continue from the projection space into the film and back. Mik´s works deal with the dynamics of situations and the physical experience of space.

INTERPRETATIONS, FROM PORI ART MUSEUM’S COLLECTIONS
[20.11.2002 - 19.01.2003]




MEDIA RELEASE:

INTERPRETATIONS
From Pori Art Museum’s Collections
20 November – 19 January 2003

Who interprets and what or who? Does the artist interpret humans, life around himself, read, analyse and render visible? Or is he only the interpret of his own emotions and sensations or is his way led by the trends and likings of the art world? What is the relationship between coincidence and intention in art, culture or in the search for new? How do art museums make their choices from this cornucopia, decide of their exhibitions, choose works to their collections?

The discourse concerning the museums acquiring policy seems to raise its head on regular intervals. One of the most authoritative statements of this autumn was made by Tuula Arkio, the General Director of the National Art Galleries, Helsinki, who was concerned of the division of duties between the Finnish museums and their identities. “It is clear that no one needs a museum that does not have a clear operational profile, high-quality collections and exhibitions”.

High-quality collection is an opportunity to the art museum, but no contemporary museum can rest solely on its presentation in order to successfully live and operate. The museum collection must link up with the museum’s profile; it is a resource and a starting point on a way forward. Collections form a basis upon which museum lays out its research and exhibition activities. Collecting information, familiarizing with the phenomenons in the field of visual arts forms a basis on which the museum directs itself, makes choices, presents art and artists. Museum’s collection both documents this work and serves as a starting point and an accelerator for new information and research. A successful collection policy tells in a balanced and interesting way of the phenomenons of the art of our times and also of the choices the museum has done in following its operational profile.

Pori Art Museum has regularly presented its collections and new acquisitions. INTERPRETATIONS is one world of possibilities, a multi-edged prism that reflects the artistic currents of our time in Finnish and international level. It does not believe in one single explanation model, one interpretative point of departure, but offers a possibility for the viewer to crab hold of that rich and multifaceted reality that opens itself up in the art works. INTERPRETATIONS includes works by among others the following artists: Jose Bedia, Flavio Garciandia, Kalle Hamm, Ensio Härkönen, Andrei Jahnin, Päivi Jokinen, Ismo Kajander, Markku Keränen, Henry Merimaa, Julien Collieux, Kimmo Sarje, Imants Tillers ja Sándor Vály.

Come and make your own conclusions and interpretations!

HALL, WING, PROJECT ROOM

The Belgian artist Wim Delvoye (b. 1965) is known for his ironic and innovative way of dealing with cultural themes. His art is often characterized by fanatical decoration and altering the original functions of objects. The exhibition presents Delvoye´s works from the 1990´s and his latest works specially made for this exhibition tour. The exhibition is produced in collaboration with the museum kunst palast of Düsseldorf and the Musée d´Art Contemporain of Lyon.

PLAY & CONTROL
[22.03.2002 - 02.06.2002]



The exhibition Play and Control is about the tension between the desire to play (the precondition for every creative process) and the necessity to have a legitimated form.
The curator asked the artists to start focusing their attention on the child at play. The child moves its object and toys countless times. It does not play with a previously formulated result in mind. The aim of the game is the game itself. The child is free and without obligations. Now its educator comes and says, ‘make a house’ or ‘draw a horse’. In so doing they have a very specific aim in mind. The play is given a structure. But at the same time the child loses its pure desire to play, its unbridled, totally free creativity.
The artist is able to retain some of this original childlike ability. This is after all the precondition for creative work. But then a new obstacle arises: the unwritten rules and regulations of the art world. In order to be visible, tangible and discussible (not to mention ’saleable’), both the creative process and the way it is presented have to be cast in a very specific mould. This mould is subject to trends. To what extend should the artist to be prepared to compromise? When the form becomes more important than the content there is a danger of academic dullness setting in.
To summarise: the creative process itself, which comes very close to a young child’s play, does not lead to really visible results, and too much attention paid to form and presentation brings with it academism and repetition. What is interesting is the tension between the two. The work of the eight artists shows evidence of it.
ALICE BOURCEREAU (F) is putting with the complicity of the Museum’s staff marbles in the pockets of the visitor’s coats. MARIE BELENOTTI-BELLOT (F) shows a videotape were a young woman is blowing on a waffle full of sugar. The sugar is dispersing in slow motion. ELISA COISSARD (F) lives in Berlin. She’s preparing a moveable puzzle as a 3D labyrinth. JULIEN COLLIEUX (F) is also living and working in Berlin. He is making a marionette of 8 meters height. The visitors can make a drawing by handling it. The drawing will become part of the exhibition. There will be a permanently changing installation of enlarged playing cards by JOSEPH JESSEN (D). NADIA NAVEAU (B) is showing a big playground with monumental sculptures inspired by war games and toy soldiers. TANJA RAU (DK) is making a colourful bas-relief on the phenomena of bus-stations. And finally TEREZA VELIKOVA (CZ) will show an installation inspired by her memory as a young child trying to take a ball to big for her tiny hands.

AUTOJA - CARS
KARI CAVÈN
[22.09.2001 - 02.12.2001]



Kari Cavén who began his career as a painter, moved in the 1980`s after experimenting with different materials to tridimensional expression. Instead of traditional sculpture Cavén is known for his sensitive object collages, which have playful humour in them. Cavén uses wood, metal, recycled materials and scrap as materials in his works.

Kari Cavén examines the surrounding world, also in a concrete way, when searching new materials for his works. Cavén´s object works contain familiar elements, which are present in the everyday life. He makes art out of utility articles and on elsewhere restores art objects into daily use.

Perception, which comes into being through seeing and combining, is strongly present in Cavén´s works. The variety of the visual and conceptual references in his works create a space for new meanings. Cavén´s works contain multiple references to the nature of objects and materials and also references to their use, cultural history and art history.

In the Pori Art Museum´s exhibition hall Cavén carries out an installation entitled Cars, which consists of dozens of miniature cars filling the entire exhibition hall. Inspiration to these have primarily been wheels but also the artist´s own childhood with the building and driving hill cars. The car wheels are linked together with different kinds of structures; wood curves, straight and bend metalbars, tubes etc. forming own personality to every car.

Skulpturens Hus in Stockholm showed Kari Cavéns exhibition Konst och Bilar (Art and Cars) on Spring 2000. Pori Art Museum´s exhibition introduces also Cavén´s newest cars. There is also a car track where children can drive pedal cars.

Kari Cavén was born in Savonlinna in 1954. He studied 1976-77 in Free Art school, 1977-78 in University of Art and Design in Helsinki and 1978-82 in Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki. He has participated in various international exhibitions as in Venice Biennale in 1988, 1990, 1995.

MARIA FRIBERG
[22.09.2001 - 25.11.2001]



Swedish artist Maria Friberg works extensively ranging from photography to videos and performances. She skillfully stages motifs and sceneries repeating them with small variations. The content of her work is rich: it is subjected to many connotations and interpretations.

Maria Friberg examines in her works the themes of sexual identity and social relationships. In her recent projects she has explored power and masculinity. Identity as social construction has been one of the key themes of the last few decades. Especially this can be seen in the feminist art that developed in the United States in the 1970´s wth artists like Sherrie Levine and Cindy Shermann who treat the female subject as a result of social stereotypes and codes. Now Maria Friberg applies the same discussion to men.

During the last years Maria Friberg has investigated modernism by focusing on the modern man. The men in suits intrigue Maria Friberg. The suit is a ultimate symbol of the well-organized society where rationality, structure and efficiency rule. The driving forces of the society materialize in the dark suit.

For several weeks Maria Friberg sat in the middle of the IT business center in Stockholm observing the passing business people and occasionally speaking with them, Some of the young men she met became models in her photographs where she has placed them at tables, in cars, swimming pool, on sand and in the ocean.

The exhibition is the first of Maria Friberg in Finland. In Pori Maria Friberg will show her photographic series Almost There, videos Blown Out, No Time to Fall, Somewhere Else and together with Monika Larsen Dennis a video Driven, as well as performance Dream Mile.

Maria Friberg was born in 1966 in Malmö, Sweden. Currently she lives and works in New York. She has studied art history in Gothenburg, art at Nordic Art School in Kokkola as well as in Reykjavik. She graduated 1995 from Royal Academy of Arts (Kungliga Konsthögskolan) in Stockholm. She has participated in international exhibitions in Scandinavia, Germany and San Francisco and has had solo exhibitions in Sweden, Germany, Holland and Austria.

SPIRITUS EUROPAEUS 1980-2000
RAX RINNEKANGAS
[11.11.2000 - 01.07.2001]



A Photographer´s retrospective on spiritual illumination and ordinary people from the fringe cultures of Europe.

For last twenty years, Rax Rinnekangas has been using his camera to capture the ordinary people of Europe behind the news pictures, people from Utsjoki to Gibraltar and from the Atlantic to the Urals. This exhibition shows the results; how do people look in a psychological light? What about the everyday elements without people in them at all in different cultural circles where different languages are spoken?

Rax Rinnekangas' camera has looked at light in fourteen different cultures. Out of the results grows a journey respecting the special charasteristics of different cultures, a journey towards the
light of the old continent and into the soul landscape of Europe that lies behind the news.

In Rinnekangas' photographs light has the leading role. Henri-Cartier Bresson's ‘decisive moment’ is replaced by ‘decisive light’. The light of a landscape, contre-jour, the light thrown by a single lamp, the lifeless laboratory light and the impudence of a neon light create an atmosphere of expectation, premonition, unexpectedness or threat.

Rinnekangas does not construct nor set things. His ideal is an image that, in fact, says nothing. His artistic genre is ‘nadaism’, a philosophy of eptiness and meaningless. Anything is good enough to be the surface of a wall, flicker of a shadow. This very demarcation of the boundaries of meaninglessness and ambiguity, unimportance and importance, is the content of his photographs.

Rinnekangas has worked also as a film director, a journalist and as a writer: he has published books, novels and essays. This year he is making three movies. Rinnekangas has had over twenty exhibitions, some of them international, and has published eight photographic books. He has received the State Prize for Photography 1989 and the State Prize for Literature 1992.

SPIRITUS EUROPÆUS -exhibition was seen at Amos Anderson Art Museum in sipring 2000 and at Reykjavik Art Museum, Island, in summer 2000. For Pori Art Museum Rinnekangas has made a special nine meters long Le Nord-Sud Express photographic train.

TRIPTYCHOS POST HISTORICUS
BRACO DIMITRIJEVIC
[10.06.2000 - 03.09.2000]



or Finnish Rhapsody with a Touch of Suprematism

The Yugoslavian artist Braco Dimitrijevic (born 1948) has realized a series of works since 1976 named Triptychos Post Historicus where he sets works belonging to the collections of art museums into a new context. Dimitrijevic's triptych always contains three parts selected by the artist: a work of art from the museum's collections, an object and a natural product. The context created by the elements combined in the same space and time frees the work of art from established interpretations. By breaking the conventional ways of placing works on display Dimitrijevic exposes the expectations and preconceived interpretation models connected with the work of art.

The Triptychos Post Historicus installation draws a parallel between culture and nature. It coincides values that are traditionally held both physically and conceptually opposed such as aesthetic and practical value and nature, as well as reverse concepts of time: the historical value of the art work is reflected against a backdrop of everyday and the cycle of nature. Braco Dimitrijevic's installation deliberates on the formulation of meanings, the accumulation of historical significance and the process of aesthetic perception. The tensions between individual elements of the work arise from their physical connection, as the object serves as a pedestal for the work of art.

The Triptychos Post Historicus to be realized in the Pori Art Museum is the last part in the series of the artist=s installations. The installation combines musical instruments and products of the traditional woodworking industry of the Satakunta region with works selected from the collections of the Maire Gullichsen's Art Foundation. The collection is personalized to Maire Gullichsen through photographs that portray a subject, a cultural personality and a collector.

HALL

Obsession The video and photographic installation of the Polish artist Maciej Toporowicz (born 1958) elaborates on the connection between German sculpture and architecture of the 1930s to the American commercial aesthetics of the 1990s. The black & white photographs and video projections punctuated by music delicately portray the relation of the ideal images of people of our own time to the superhuman ideals of Fascism.
