Solo exhibition by Anna Tuori in Paris

In Paris, Anna Tuori’s solo exhibition En appelant l’avenir à revenir at Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve runs until 9 March 2024.

 

“Puddles, distortions, and dilutions are mixed with more precise, held forms, notably panels that obstruct space and indicate that the scene is far from fixed and clearly delineated. Tuori’s pictorial gestures coexist with evocations of several creative moments: rapid, tender, urgent, concentrated. In addition to challenging the dichotomous idea that expressionist painting comes from the heart and conceptual painting from the brain, these diverse gestures transcribe the spirit of dislocated time.” –Elora Weill-Engerer

Jani Ruscica on view at Kiasma’s new collection exhibition

Jani Ruscica’s video piece Beginning an Ending (2009) is on view at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki as part of a new collection exhibition Feels Like Home, running until 12 January 2025. All artworks in the exhibition are from the collections of the Finnish National Gallery.

The exhibition reflects on the theme of home and belonging through contemporary art. The featured artworks show that home can be a physical place, a community, or a state of mind. They reach out not only to the past but to the future as well. In Ruscica’s work, seven amateur actors morph the blank canvas of the film studio into a temporary stage for their visions of the future. The seven variations on the future and the eventual end of time reflect how history and the past as well as the imagery mediated by the media and popular culture shape our notions about the future.
