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. Yppärilä creates her works by taking photographs of existing buildings, and over the years she has amassed thousands of these documentary pictures. Build-up features a selection from the archive.

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.
