Order - Disorder

Street galleries
Helsinki, Finland

Opening 18.8.2011 at 18.00 in front of Jaskan Grilli, Museokatu, Helsinki.

Street galleries was iniciated by visual artist Magdalena Åberg in 2005 and from there on, organizes yearly changing exhibitions in the electricity distribution cabinets in the streets of Helsinki in co-operation with Helsinki Energy corporation and The Artists Association of Helsinki. I was invited to participate under the theme Order -  Disorder with two of my works from Monday series. They will be installed in Eerikinkatu 6 and Eerinkinkatu 36 electricity distribution cabinets. 

 

 

"For me, street galleries mean co-operation and a compromise with the city’s law and order and, on the other hand, defying it. The pictures in the street galleries may be as critical of society as tags, but their creation is not as protest-oriented, their impact is not as overtly revolutionary, but more permanent, seeking understanding, building bridges." Magdalena Åberg 2011
