TEEMU MÄKI – TRANSGENDER

25.5. – 25.6.2018
MUU Gallery
Lönnrotinkatu 33, 00180 Helsinki, Finland
Open: Tue-Fri 12-17, Sat-Sun 12-16

TEEMU MÄKI – TRANSGENDER
Images of Gender Diversity

A human being is classified either male or female at or even before birth. The classification is based on sex organs: a penis makes a man, a vagina makes a woman. But the matter isn’t as straightforward for all individuals. Some people are men, even though they have female genitalia; some are women, even if they do have a penis. They are transpeople, or transgender people to be exact.

A transperson has been placed in the wrong gender category at birth. Living in the wrong category is difficult, so most transpeople want to remedy the situation at some point in their lives and start living also publicly in the gender that is true for themselves.

Kuvataiteilija Tero Puha avaa Helsinki Priden ajaksi herkullisen Candy Boy Box -näyttelyn MUU Galleriaan. Värikkään iloittelevat taiteen, muodin ja designin hybriditeokset on pääosin kuvattu Puhan Lontoon studiolla Hackney Wickissä. Mukana on myös London Lounge -sarja mustavalkoisia muotokuvia. Kuvat ovat mieskauneuden, elämän ja ilon hattaramaisia ylistyksiä. Kaikki näyttelyn teokset ovat esillä Helsingissä ja Suomessa ensimmäistä kertaa. Näyttelytilan äänimaailmasta vastaa uusi elektroakti Midnight Commander, jonka soundimaailma sopii mainiosti Puhan eroottisesti latautuneisiin mieskuviin.

MUU Studiossa saa lisäksi ensi-iltansa Puhan toteuttama upouusi musiikkivideo Midnight Commanderin kappaleeseen ’Tutti Frutti’.

Näyttely on osa Helsinki Pride 2018 -ohjelmaa. www.helsinkipride.fi

You are most welcome to join us and spend your Sunday afternoon with the latest exhibitions in Helsinki! Free entry, like always. Come by yourself or bring your friends with you!

This time the guide for the walk will be Jane Hughes. The guided tour will be in English.

Starting from MUU Cable Roberta Lima will perform the wrapping and piercing of the red carpet of his work Comfort Zone. Initially displayed to collect the traces of the gallery visitors, the carpet now will be transformed into a sculpture. In this way, Lima aims to refer to political issues and historical facts, which remain uncomfortable to be addressed.

LIISA HILASVUORI & SANNA PAJUNEN – THE MOMENT OF SEEING

The Moment of Seeing.

13.4.-20.5.2018

Open: Mon-Fri 10-19, Sat-Sun 12-16

A work of art is a world from which one particular phenomenon has been chosen for scrutiny. A form has been painstakingly created to express that phenomenon. The work of art is a hermetic world that, while it is being made, begins to influence its creator, to suggest ways for how to move forward. Could hands-on creation bring about a more subjective and layered understanding of the weaving networks of roads or the act of floating in the sea?

Opening of the exhibition in MUU Cable is on Thursday 12 April 2018 at 5-7 pm! Welcome!
