[03.03.2017 - 27.08.2017] WING, MEDIApoint
Born in Catalonia and living in Finland, Anna Estarriola is interested in the connections between visual and media art with performing arts and technology. She is both baffled and fascinated by human communication and behaviour and interested in the presence of bodies, images and matter. In Estarriola’s works, the viewer often comes face to face with a person, a creature or even an object, and is invited to contemplate both the helplessness and the magnificence of being.Read more
OPEN STORAGE – Remembering for the Future
[03.03.2017 - 25.02.2018]Hall
Memory and its processes have in recent years become increasing prominent in the exploration of the preconditions of human creativity and problem solving. OPEN STORAGE – Remembering for the Future
is the main exhibition at the Pori Art Museum during the centenary of Finnish independence, FINLAND 100. The exhibition highlights the past and the present as both sources and facilitators of the future. Investigating art and the art museum as an institution in surprising and novel ways, the exhibition features a display of the museum collections in its main gallery, Hall. Eschewing conventional exhibition concepts, the show instead presents a layered whole that consists of processes and which gives the public a glimpse into the core of museum work: the management of collections and archives. It also highlights the complexities of the constant flux of phenomena in art and the history of interpretation and reinterpretation over the decades.Read more
UNDER THE GROUND OF OUR TIMES - (de)construction of collectivity in and through collection
[01.02.2017 - 27.08.2017]PROJECT ROOM
The exhibition is divided into two parts: Process 01.02.-31.05. and Exhibition 01.06.-27.08.
Under the Ground of Our Times – (De)construction of Collectivity in and Through Collection
is a curatorial project that delves into the incomplete and contingent aspects of archives and collections, the fractures in representational schemes: discarded histories and disparate temporalities, uncanny encounters and uninvited collaborations. In so doing, the aim is to open up new spaces and occasions for rethinking the artistic, epistemic and political roles of the contemporary museum.Read more

Thinking of Invertebrates (2017)
[06.06.2017 - 06.08.2017]Screening STAIRCASE8 September/
In the botanical gardens, a bank has sponsored a flowerbed and a telecommunications company a park bench, the historical greenhouse has been renovated with EU money. Indoors, a woman waters plant beds with a garden hose. I find the fungi growing on the rotten wood between the labelled plants most impressive. Some of the mushrooms look like small, soil-coated almond potatoes. One minuscule pale-yellow fungus, decorative like a hedgehog mushroom, is washed invisible with the pressure of the water from the hose. In the cactus room, a Stapelia grandiflora
is opening its buds. A dark squirrel hides hazelnuts from its cheek pouches into a plastic flowerpot by the building. Read more
