Welcome to join artist Camilla Vuorenmaa and Milja Mikkola, Program manager of the Midnight Sun Film Festival, for a conversation around the themes of Vuorenmaa’s exhibition I promised to come back for her birthday.
The duration of the event is approximately 1 hour.
Camilla Vuorenmaa’s (b. 1979 in Tampere, Finland) solo exhibition I promised to come back for her birthday is based on the artist’s everyday fantasies and the meaningful action heroes of her youth. In the exhibition, stories and time are layered, the artist’s childhood fears and joys reflected on the now. The exhibition features abstract topics painted on relief-like wooden bases typical of Vuorenmaa. With a two-part audiovisual work completed for this exhibition, Vuorenmaa steps on unfamiliar ground.
