Saturday 13 April 12:00 - 18:00
Sunday 14 April 12:00 - 18:00
Welcome to join us at booth 30 at Market Art Fair 2019!
The aim of Helsinki Contemporary's duo presentation is to create a visual disruption with the combination of the dark charcoal drawings of Heiska and Räisänen’s colourful but light paintings. At the core of both artists’ work is the act of drawing but it manifests itself in two very different ways and techniques. The presentation combines two ways of looking at the world, the personal and everyday contrasting to the universal and societal. In the end, they both create stories of this time, the realities in which we live.
Hannaleena Heiska’s paintings, drawings, sculptures, video works and installations create illusions of captured moments, different worlds and subcultures. She often deals with topics drawn from science and uses camouflage motifs to address the contradictions created by digitality. Heiska’s mid-career retrospective is currently on view at Turku Art Museum in Finland, in the coming summer she will participate in the 10th edition of the Momentum Biennale in Norway.
Janne Räisänen is a painter who constantly shifts between canvas and paper. This movement is reflected in the ways in which the work is displayed. His drawings and paintings show and comment on the daily lives of human beings in warm-hearted, humorous and, not to forget, weird ways. Räisänen’s solo exhibition at Schwarz Contemporary, Berlin is on view till April 13. He is currently also showing in Stadstgalerie Kiel, as part of the exhibition An der Nordkante – Der Mensch in der finnischen Gegenwartskunst.
