Matters of Time: Artists from Finland
FRANKFURT, GERMANY  •  Frankfurter Kunstverein  •  25 July - 12 October 2014
 
 
Finland is Guest of Honour of the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair. In conjunction with the fair, the Frankfurter Kunstverein is presenting the exhibition Matters of Time. Artists from Finland. The group exhibition brings together works by eight artists and artist duos from Finland, offering an in-depth look at diverse approaches within contemporary Finnish art. Using different media, including photography, video, sculpture, sound, and computer animation, the exhibited works address the nature of time and metaphors of transience.

Matters of Time takes its point of departure from Deleuze’s concept of “becoming,” in which the continuous flow of time opens up the potential for individuals who are in the process of becoming to experiment with various modalities of living and being. More than in almost any other Nordic country, in Finland the rhythm of life is closely linked to nature and the changing light conditions. The activeness of being outside during the white nights of summer alternates with the reclusive, slowed- down life inside during the darkness of winter. In such Nordic countries the passage of time can thus be perceived as being either fast or very slow. The participating artists address this range of perceptions in different ways: by creating a sensual impression of the transition between inside and outside, by experimenting with space and time through the use of the body, sound, or language, or by employing instructions for action resulting from collective socio-political projects. When engaging with the works in the exhibition viewers are confronted with their own individual perception of time and space, and their awareness for the passage of time is heightened.

Participating artists / artist duos: Maija Blåfield, Tommi Grönlund & Petteri Nisunen, IC-98 (Visa Suonpää & Patrik Söderlund), Mikko Kuorinki, Minna Långström, Salla Myllylä, Elena Näsänen, and Pink Twins (Juha & Vesa Vehviläinen)
