Dissonance – Resonance : spatial variations presents five emerging Finnish artists who share an interdisciplinary approach to working in the fields of contemporary drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media and performing arts. The works in the exhibition vary from drawn works and installations to live performances, each presenting ideas on how space can be translated and transformed into works of art; it can be an actual location but also a state of mind, whereas the spatial experiences can vary from precise bodily sensations to more metaphysical transitions between subjective narratives – it can exclude, include, obscure and expose those who venture into it. These are, among others, the questions the artists had worked with for the exhibition. The works in the exhibition both agree and argue with each other when offering various viewpoints to the observers; acts that draw inspiration from similar elements viewed through a different spectrum. When presented in the shared gallery space, they are constantly in relation to one another, yet each of them can be experienced as their own individual micro cosmos, worlds within a world from where they’re stepped into. With the exhibition, the artists invite the guests to look beyond the lines, layers and sculpted structures; to see for themselves how something as universal yet as intimate as space can, when given a moment, be approached. We invite you to trespass. Welcome.
