A WEEK'S NOTICE
Tomaso De Luca
[22.10.2021 - 02.01.2022]

PROJECT ROOM

A Week's Notice is a three-channel video and sound installation in which miniature models of houses borrowed from the cinema, history of architecture and the artist's private life, are seeing flying and collapsing before the viewer's eyes. It is an ode to the disintegration of architecture that seeks beauty in instability and turns trauma into a new territory of creation and rebirth.

[30.04.2021 - 26.09.2021]

WING

Performing the Fringe evolved over the artists' and curators' collective hikes in three different contexts in the rural–urban fringe areas of the cities of Pori, Stockholm and Vilnius. Hiking unfolded as a common activity that combines walking, observation, talking and engaging with regional specificities while also serving as a tool for researching and understanding local contexts. Experiences in these environments and the artists' research processes that evolved from the hikes have materialised into artistic commissions.

ART REACHES OUT!
[23.10.2020 - 30.05.2021]

Café MUUSA

Each year, our collection unit installs dozens of artworks on city premises, within public spaces and in offices. The approximately one thousand such works include paintings, prints and sculptures, and everything from traditional portraits to non-figurative contemporary art.

How can art contribute to a work environment? What ideas, feelings or discussions have artworks in the city's premises inspired? Can art provide inspiration or serve as a tool in a workaday setting? The exhibition features pictures of school children and city personnel from Pori, each with a work from our collection that they have chosen for their workplace or school.

MY PERVERSION IS THE BELIEF IN ART
Artists: Ellen Cantor, Miriam Cahn, Luciano Castelli, Alba S. Enström, Rainer Fetting, Andrea Éva Győri, Viljami Heinonen, Eeva Peura, Merzedes Sturm-Lie, Marianna Uutinen, Amalia Vekri, Alisa Yoffe
[23.10.2020 - 21.02.2021]

Hall, Wing and MEDIApoint

The exhibition title is a reference to a quote from the late artist Ellen Cantor (1961–2013): ”My perversion is the belief in true love”.
This exhibition brings together artists from different generations and backgrounds. Artists who are interested not in the latest theories but in underground culture, poets, punk, life, passion, fashion magazines such as Vogue, popular film references, pornographic magazines... All featured artists address the struggle of being human, of finding an orientation in the here and now. They all bring energy into their art, with few or no compromises. Their determination to embrace both life and art can be seen as a harbinger of a better future.

BUILD-UP
Jenni Yppärilä
[20.03.2020 - 27.09.2020]

MEDIApoint

Build-up is a work that explores agglomeration. Compared with Yppärilä's earlier work, it represents a new, more monumental and spatial approach. Instead of separate buildings, the work presents us with a number of façades joined together.

ADRIAN MELIS
[20.03.2020 - 27.09.2020]

WING

For artist Adrian Melis and many others living in Cuba in the early 1990 's reality existed between the long shadow cast by Fidel Castro 's glorious revolution and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Shaped by this paradoxical state of existence Adrian Melis 's practice can be described as a series of inconspicuous interventions, often poetic and surreal, which address, systemic political and corporate corruption, political apathy, labour markets, bureaucratic inefficiency, and their effect on the social fabric.

LONG FAREWELLS
OLA VASILJEVA
[20.03.2020 - 27.09.2020]

Hall

Ola Vasiljeva engages with the Pori Museum primarily through its architectural ancestry. Formerly a weigh house, the building in the town port had a transitive, measuring, evaluating function. It was a threshold space, made for the passage of goods, for their transition via a temporary halt, display and estimation.
As if subjected to a similar transition, Vasiljeva 's artworks are passersby in this liminal space.

THE LEANING AND BLIND (2017)
Sara Pathirane
[17.12.2019 - 16.02.2020]

STAIRCASE

By the Leaning tower of Pisa, an endless choreography goes on. Attempting to catch the iconic shot, people are posing as if holding the tower up. Hundreds of strangers fumble and probe at air, like the blind, finding their way. This creates a shared language of movement, a global game of chinese whispers.
