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 exhibition consists of paintings, drawings and sculptures from the collections of the Pori Art Museum.

A selection of video works that discuss nuclear power.
BENTEN CLAY is a global corporation with a cross-disciplinary approach. The focus lies on the production of a long-term project titled Age of an End in which the appearance of the now is analyzed, assessing the limitation of natural resources, their implementations, as well as mechanisms of power and volatility inherent to the human pursuit of control.

It’s the Political Economy, Stupid brings together a group of superlative artists who focus on the current crisis in a sustained and critical manner. Rather than acquiesce to our current calamity this exhibition asks if it is not time to push back against the disciplinary dictates of the capitalist logic and, as if by some artistic sorcery, launch a rescue of the very notion of the social itself.
