Karoliina Hellberg joins Galerie Anhava
Galerie Anhava is proud to announce its representation of Finnish artist Karoliina Hellberg (b. 1987, Porvoo). Karoliina Hellberg showcased her works for the first time at Galerie Anhava in November 2016. Hellberg's works range from large and sumptuous paintings in oils and acrylic to precisely executed, even palm-sized works on paper. The core motifs of her works are rooms, interiors and buildings, and she draws inspiration from places, people and stories that appeal to her.
Karoliina Hellberg combines in her works tranquillity and untroubledness with an enigmatic atmosphere. In her nostalgic views and bourgeois salons, the boundaries between time and space are blurred. Hellberg is interested in the notion of aesthetic phantoms, which has become a methodological approach for her, an element of visual language.
Karoliina Hellberg graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in 2015 and in recent years she has participated in group and joint shows in addition to holding solo exhibitions at HAM Gallery in Helsinki (2016) and Gallery Kulma in Porvoo (2015). Her works are in the collections of the Päivi and Paavo Lipponen Fund, the Saastamoinen Foundation, the Helsinki Art Museum and in private collections in Finland, the United Kingdom and Belgium.

Anne Koskinen's artwork unveiled at VTT Centre for Nuclear Safety in Espoo
Anne Koskinen has created an installation of stone sculptures at the courtyard area of the VTT Centre for Nuclear Safety in Otaniemi, Espoo. The work is unveiled on Tuesday 13 September 2016. The Nuclear Physicist's Apple (Ydinfyysikon omena) consists of nine granite sculptures: eight sculptures are situated at the courtyard and one can be found inside the building.
The artwork was commissioned by the Finnish State Art Commission based on a competition held in 2013. Six entries were submitted, of which the competition jury gave first place to Anne Koskinen’s entry The Nuclear Physicist’s Apple (under the pseudonym Halkaisija). This work was evaluated as follows: “A positive and easily approachable entry avoiding the unnecessary mystification of nuclear physics. It tells of the work carried out in the centre with the aid of a humoristic metaphor. The various parts of the piece are in a large area, which gives it an everyday function by providing places for staff and visitors to take a break outside. The material, granite, is problem-free and easy to maintain.”
The work continues the story of Newton’s Apple suggesting that a nuclear physicist, instead of seeing an apple fall, would rather be interested in splitting an apple.

"I have been working hard in recent years, in new ways and in search of something new, which is another reason why this award feels especially gratifying. The monetary award is also a concrete form of support and recognition, with the help of which I can continue working on my current projects until they are ready for their openings and premieres."
