On 11 August at 4:30 pm artist Jukka Korkeila will be joined by curator Mika Hannula for a discussion about the topical themes of the exhibition and the starting points of the works currently on display.
The event, held in Finnish, is open to all and the duration of the evengt is around 1 hour.
The exhibition, linked with another currently on display at the Finnish Institute in Germany on Berlin’s Friedrichstraße, gathers ideas from the midst of global crises: the Covid-19 pandemic and war have raised questions about life, its finiteness, and gratitude for the joys of everyday moments. The exhibition space will be filled with a selected collection of works created during the last few years, now presented for the first time in Finland – in Korkeila’s fifth solo exhibition at the gallery.
Jukka Korkeila (b. 1968, Hämeenlinna) is one of Finland’s foremost painters; his works have been on display in various museums and galleries around the world. He lives and works in three cities: Berlin, Glauburg-Stockheim, and Helsinki. Korkeila has participated in exhibitions around Europe, and all the main Nordic collections include his works.
