Drawings – Reijo Kärkkäinen

Drawing is thinking – mostly chaos. Sometimes I’m happily surprised: Did I really created that.

Reijo Kärkkäinen (b.1964) is a Finnish artist who graduated as Bachelor of Arts from University of Industrial Arts in Helsinki. Kärkkäinen is a multidisciplinary visual artist, whose work ranges from paintings, graphics, installations, photographs to comics and illustrations. He works also together with the French arthouse Le Dernier Cri ( The Artist lives and works in Kuopio.

Reijo Kärkkäinen studies drawing and painting in his work, both text and image boundaries and the mutual interaction. Performing take turns an abstract expression, and a drawing line finds the painting. Kärkkäinen coordinates different points of view, in which the seriousness meets the satire and popular culture is toying with the traditional expression of art. Associations collide and cruise with each other, and when the crash generated in the right circumstances, there will be life.

Tecla Gato

Tecla Gato feat. Hui-Chun Lin
12.1 at 8.30pm

Tecla Gato is formed by musicians from different generations of the improv scene in Buenos Aires. The concept suggested by their improvisations proposes the mixture of acoustic instruments with the addition of sound objects, electronics and processed voices. They often utilize in their performances graphic scores of their own creation as a blueprint for improvisations.

In this trio’s sound pursuit, the organic and the electronic blend together revealing textures where mutant, amorphous landscapes are suggested, that evoke an almost lovecraftian cosmology, creating kaleidoscopic moments and oneiric sensations.
Hue-Chun Lin is a cellist invited to perform with Tecla Gato.

Gustavo Obligado: sax, electronics, voices.
Caro Tierhs: violin, objects.
Pablo Vazquez: bass, electronics, voices.
Hui-Chun Lin: cello

Concert starts at 8.30pm. Duration of the concert will be approximately 40 minutes.
