On Saturday April 27, 2024, at 2 pm, a conversation that dives into the themes of the exhibition “Undertones” by Ville Andersson will take place at Helsinki Contemporary. Curator and art historian (PhD) Juha-Heikki Tihinen will be in discussion with the artist.

The language of the event is Finnish.


Ville Andersson’s solo exhibition “Undertones” highlights the medium of drawing as a mode of being present and observing oneself and how one’s relationship with one’s surroundings keeps changing. The exhibition presents a powerful and cohesive body of work on paper that gains dynamism from subtle rhythmic accents and carefully placed surprises.

Both the technique and the scale of the drawings are significant. The drawings present extreme close-ups, and they are in turn viewed at close range, as if the viewer were touching them, thoughtfully and contemplatively – caringly.


Ville Andersson’s “Undertones” runs through May 19, 2024.
