Rauha Mäkilä's paintings are presented in Eskiltuna Art Museum's contemporary art triennial Nordic Art Station - Word Art Sound. Artist from the Nordic and Baltic countries were invited to participate.
"Theme for this year is "Merry Melancholy". Seen from the outside gloom and melancholy has characterized the world's view of the Nordic countries. Sadness and longing. The darkness but also the light explosion with gentle transitions and the knowledge that everything lasts but a short time. Is it possible to add doses of humor and appreciation? Can we send melancholy a warm greeting? Can we go as far as to celebrate it? That’s what the Nordic Art Station will examine.", the triennal is described.
The triennial is open 28.8.–9.11.2013.
