Ilkka Pöyhönen "My Japan" | Exhibition @artkaarisilta | On display through 21 May | #art #exhibition #gallery #exploreart #japan #photography #helsinki #hkiartguide #finland

The collection presents Ilkka Pöyhönen's work as a storyteller and an interpreter. He focuses on views from Japanese temples, and the photographies are from the years 1996 and 1997.

The photographies show the Japanese tradition of wood building: skillfully created spaces that are seamlessly connected to the surrounding landscape. The eternal trees in the gardens and temple yards are highlighted – the careful maintenance they receive tells a lot about the Japanese mentality.

"Class One Hundred and Two" - Group Exhibition @artkaarisilta | Last chance to see - today and tomorrow (29 April) | #art #exhibition #exploreart #gallery #outsiderart #helsinki #hkiartguide #finland

What is a class? Is it just a place to work in? Is it so that in some places a very special atmosphere is formed?
Many times a very intensive, active and relaxed atmosphere prevails in the classroom. The main idea seems to be that “everything affects everything”. This means that the artists are not working inside a hermetic bubble and the different personal and general events of the day influence what they are doing. And yet, sometimes when the working day is done and the classroom becomes empty, you can still sense the conversations and sounds of the work right there.

Artists: Jenna Elo, Neea Haapala, Casimir Kaarre, Lassi Muurinen, Oona Peltola, Mark Piekkala, Tuukka Rasku, Pinja Sydänmaa, Seita Tenttula, Mikael Valjakka.

Rock and Soft | Autism Association’s group exhibition | On display through Sunday 9 April @artkaarisilta | #art #exhibition #exploreart #gallery #autism #outsiderart #helsinki #hkiartguide #finland
As Otto Kasvio says: “What is entertaining in art is that, for example, if you have an imagination wilder than Tarzan, it is nicely useful. The subject can be a quite ordinary thing but, when you take a new perspective or add peculiar colours, suddenly it can be called art. The easiest way, of course, is to make art about the subject you are interested in, that you like, you adore, but you might as well choose another subject. Sometimes you might get an inspiration to create few same of a kind pieces, although a little different and/or peculiar. The subject remains the same”. Artists: Joannis Clementides, Karita Heimonen, Otto Kasvio, Hanna Keynäs, Henna Laulainen, Matti Pesonen, Markku Tolvanen, Miikka, participants of Culture and Media workshop by the Guidance and Couching Services of Espoo.

"- Do you have a favorite color you like using in your works?
- I think black – a non-color – is my favorite color (laughs). I love it because it is emptied with meaning, but at the same time it gives way to new meanings." *
