Remain In Light

Helsinki Contemporary, Southern Finland, Helsinki, 06/05/2015 - 06/28/2015

Bulevardi 10


Helsinki Contemporary ends its spring season with a collective exhibition curated by Mika Hannula: Valon voimaa // Remain in Light. This brings together major figures from different generations in contemporary painting, who each represent a different approach to painting. This cohort of artists are offering viewers new works produced specifically for the exhibition.

The exhibition focuses on a key aspect of the artistic working process: hope – the hope of finding a way to continue, of keeping moving, of doing and acting. What is the power and the light that makes you carry on working and seeking a way forwards? Where do you find the light necessary for the working process – the symbol of hope and continuity?

The second part of the exhibition title is a direct quotation from the 1980 Talking Heads album Remain in Light. This record produced by Brian Eno symbolizes the way that the heat and the movement of things can be combined so as to keep it all together and generate a flow, impetus and warmth.

Featuring Artists: Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson, Eeva-Riitta Eerola, Jukka Korkeila, Heidi Lampenius, Anna Retulainen and Henry Wuorila-Stenberg.
