Can we speak of a genuine Finnish contemporary art? And if it is possible, how does it manifest? Madrid-based curatorial collective hablarenarte reflects in this exhibition, together with the Finnish curators Anna- Kaisa Rastenberger, Helena Björk, Kimmo Modig and Juha-Heikki Tihinen, whether there is a link between nationality, identity and the newest contemporary creation.
Collaboratively the curators selected five emerging artists from Finland to participate in the exhibition: Sara Bjarland, Erika Erre, Jonna Kina, Bita Razavi and Jan Soppela. The artists work with a range of media, from photography to sculptural installations. Together their works address a complex set of interwoven aesthetic and critical questions, such as the manifestation of traditions and values in material culture, everyday objects and visions of nature.
The exhibiton took place during ARCO Madris fair at Sala Alcalá 31, 18.2.–30.3.
