KORJAAMO is a large culture factory (kulttuuritehdas in suomi) of Helsinki. Designed with lots of nature details, wood, Scandinavian furniture designs and minimalist style. They have amazing programme, building and spaces for being relaxed and around artistic pieces. Last monday, I went to there. I was very curious to know more about what was happening there. I met with a comfortable bar, art gallery, bookshop and concert/theatre place. Yess! and the prices of the gigs have a good price (8€, 10€, 12€). In the art gallery, there is this exhibition of these 2 artist: Mari Hokkanen ” Set & Setting” as a photographer and Ilari Hautamäki “Stargazing” as painter.

The works of photographer Mari Hokkanen often have a strong performative character and she often performs as her own model. This photos are based on stories, set in a scenery that Hokkanen has constructed herself. “…The ambiguity of images is an important element in my work. The exhibition title Set & Setting not only refers to the staged worlds, but also to the imagination of people when they view my works. I always tell my own story, offering one interpretation. As spectators, we project our own set of values to the works we encounter, and finally, our interpretations are representations of a personal mental settings”, says Mari.

The paintings of Ilari Hautamäki are abstract landscapes with some figurative elements. The starting point of the grid is the idea of virtual space, computer graphics of 1980s, and the aesthetics of old computer games. The exhibition title is Stargazing, refers to astronomy and stellar and planetary observations. And also, it means dreams and dreaming of something – the gazing at the stars.

    ¿Denuncia ecológica en la fotografía? ¿Paisajes que inquietan en la pintura? Buen sitio para reflexionar.

    • Si si! Además Korjaamo, el centro cultural es un sitio inspirador!
