Johannes Rantapuska & Sauli Sirviö: Bad Gateways at HAM gallery, Helsinki 11.6-24.7.2016.
”Everyone should feel somewhat lost on a regular basis – it’s somehow healthy.”
The exhibition focuses on the areas that remain at the perimeter of our corneas, where we do not normally focus: wastelands, track yards, abandoned buildings, construction sites, industrial areas, tunnels, terminals, shacks, backwoods, rest places, dead ends and other non-areas.
When you step into these areas, time and place begin to slide in a liminal state, generating experiences and encounters. This adventure will take form at HAM Gallery as an exhibition where individual works will interpret the moods experienced along the way.
A catalogue will be available in the gallery as an exhibition guide. The catalogue consists of a dialogue between the artists about drifting from the Finnish summertime to Greek ruins, from the Finnish railways to Athens’ underground tunnels.
