ANNA HYRKKÄNEN & HEIDI SARAMÄKI – DELUSIONS OF CERTAINTY II

9.11.-16.12.2018

 “A mind burning holes in the world.” (The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, Siri Hustvedt)

We seek meanings for isolated experiences of the human mind that can appear to us as bodily or mental states. Experiences are porous and find a place in landscapes of shifting in-between states; mind and body, me and you, perception, memory and imagination, are all interlinked. Ultimately the seemingly separate feelings, perceptions and images may settle into our everyday consciousness and organise themselves into a narrative whole.

Opening on Thursday 8th of November, from 5pm – 7pm. Welcome!

MICHAL CZINEGE – BEHIND THE MOON

9.11.-16.12.2018
MUU Gallery
Lönnrotinkatu 33, Helsinki, Finland
Open: Tue – Fri 12-17, Sat – Sun 12-16

Ilustrative image for invitation M. Czinege

image:Michal Czinage, Behind the Moon

                                                                                                                                                                                                              

A restless perceptual curiosity pervades Michal Czinege’s art. In closely observing the world around us, he detects and zeroes in on peripheral phenomena, the fleeting play of light and shadow, and other modes of representing space. His gaze, moreover, is sweeping. Not only does it encompass the physical environment and simulacra, but the imagination, as well as the influence of memory, also play a role. Elements distilled from these various sources then make their way onto the surface of his chosen substrates. Here, the artist builds intricately complex visual structures that often appear chaotic, at least initially. The works tend to hover between abstraction and representation, and because of the way Czinege layers, juxtaposes and/or distorts the components, they also embody tension and contradiction. Moving background elements to the foreground, obliterating the defining features of a likeness and converging disparate periods of time are all hallmarks of his work. In some cases, the precise application of colour enables him to produce works that defy reality.

Opening on Thursday 8th of November, from 5pm – 7pm. Welcome!

PIA MÄNNIKKÖ – PHASER

9.11.-16.12.2018
MUU Cable

Open: mon–fri 10–19, sat–sun 12–16

My work is often inspired by the movements and dimensions of the human body. I am fascinated by the way we observe our environment. I am curious and like to experiment with new techniques and materials. I am inspired by nature and physics and the variable scale of the phenomena, but also by historical stage sets, pre-cinema visual effects and mechanical contraptions. In my work, I often record the passage of time or the growth and change of the works themselves. A bodily connection between the viewer and my art is important for me.

Opening on Thursday 8th of November, from 5pm – 7pm. Welcome!

MUU WRITES 5

MUU Writes is a group composed of MUU members artists who share an interest in writing. The group has set themselves the task of publishing an essay on every exhibition scheduled in MUU’s program autumn 2018, to be released both online and in the gallery.

This text is only in Finnish:

MUU kirjoittaa 18/09/2018
Teksti: SUVI NURMI – Linnunpönttö kutsuu pysähtymään
Timo Takala: Linnunpönttö, 14.9.-21.10.2018, MUU Studio

MUU Studiossa esillä oleva Timo Takalan videoteos on nimeltään Linnunpönttö. Nimi on sikäli harhaanjohtava, että itse linnunpönttö tulee mukaan kuvaan vasta viimeisillä minuuteilla, ja satunnainen katsoja ei välttämättä ehdi nähdä siitä vilaustakaan. Reilun tunnin mittaisella videolla näytettävä monivaiheinen työskentely tähtää kyllä loppujen lopuksi linnunpöntön nikkaroimiseen, mutta niin pitkän kaavan kautta, että lopputulos tuntuu sivuseikalta.

MUU writes 15/09/2018
Text: JOHN GAYER – Rooms of Color – an Alternate Kind of Prism
Mari Hokkanen: Room of colors, 14.9.-21.10.2018, MUU Cable

The visible spectrum can be measured, which reduces these colors to a few cold hard facts. For example, the wavelengths for violet to red only measure from 380 to 750 nanometres, which comprises a very tiny part of the whole electromagnetic spectrum. This doesn’t say anything about how we actually see, think about and feel these colors; these things can’t be measured. These processes are conditioned by multiple factors. Personal makeup and current circumstances, preconceived opinion, culture and history ensure colors are rarely interpreted in the same way.

Saga and Fairytale – an extremely random media installation / Markus Renvall, 14.9.–21.10.2018, MUU Gallery

Markus Renvall cooperates. He wants to entice people to take part in his works, because everyone can make art and everyone has a story to tell. He is critical to the factory-made, which does not allow the product to be improved by the user. He is looking for handmade solutions that can be reversed based on the needs that arise.
If a product is perfect, it is also uninteresting to Renvall.

MUU ARTISTS WILL SHOW THE WAY – WE NEED NEW KIND OF WRITING ABOUT ART!

Art writing for this day and age – art and audiences both need creative forms of discourse / about MUU writes group

Finland is a nation of art lovers, with visual art events and venues attracting some 4.5 million visitors annually. That is well beyond the figure even for theatre, traditionally regarded the most popular form of entertainment. Visual art can be enjoyed year round in all sorts of places, from established institutions to small galleries and pop-up exhibitions. New exciting venues are being set up all the time. Yet the number of discriminating texts about art is dwindling.

This deplorable lack has also been noted at Artists’ Association MUU, the second largest organisation representing professional artists in Finland. Now MUU writes group has set themselves the task of publishing an essay on every exhibition scheduled in MUU’s program autumn 2018, to be released both online and in the gallery.
