“Surrealism is an attitude, a desire, a need, and an ability to see past, over, and through the obvious.
It is to unify, to outline connections, to find even counter-intuitive links between things, to see the possibility of parallel, simultaneous and different perspectives.
The world gathers definitions, creates centers of meaning. It is porous and unstoppable.
The horizon changes and stays the same. At times, you can also be at peace with the conflict. In the silence of existing.”
Inka-Maaria Jurvanen, curator of the exhibition

Painting installation Landscape Sessions

Luontoja – Natures

1.10.2021 – 9.1.2022 at the Maritime Centre Vellamo, Kotka, Finland

A group exhibition by six artists, Natures is built around the theme of landscape. In their exhibition works, each member of the group presents their own view on the theme.

Nature grows and shapes itself over time, disintegrates, runs wild and assembles itself into new formations.

The landscape exists in spite of us. For us, it is a vital structure: the horizon, upper world and lower world. We try to objectify the landscape, but we are always within it as well. The featured artists are Inka-Maaria Jurvanen, Hannele Kumpulainen, Iisa Maaranen, Pia Männikkö, Miika Nyyssönen and Sara Orava.
