New Narrative and Reader

6 June to 29 August

For many years, Helsinki has contributed important artistic figures on the world stage. With each new generation, new ideas and new preoccupations emerge, narratives of investigation and new readings for audiences to explore. The Bury exhibition is the first must-see opportunity to survey latest developments in Finnish art, featuring 15 of the most highly regarded emerging artists of the contemporary scene. It's an exhibition of many voices, with all the confusion and newness of different approaches and different art forms - photography, sculpture, sound, multimedia, installation, video and painting. Themes which might be expected in Scandinavian art like nature and humanity, but also questions of identity, alienation, the feast of over consumption and dry humour born of long dark northern winters. The artists are Erno Enkenberg, Sami Havia, Pauliina Kaasalainen, Laura Konttinen, Teemu Korpela, Sampo Malin, Niina Mantsinen, Karoliina Paappa, Sami Parkkinen, Tiina Pyykkinen, Maria Teeri & Janne Nabb, Taneli Rautiainen, Bita Razavi, and Camilla Vuorenmaa. The show is the definitive survey of the current position of emerging artists from Finland with nearly all the works on display have been created specially for the exhibition. Continuing its long association with Finnish art, the Bury exhibition will transfer to Salo Art Museum in Finland in October. The Exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue specially designed by the Paris based Finnish design studio, Ahonen & Lamberg.
