International art in Fiskars
This summer the Artist-in-residence offers a surprising exhibition to all friends of art. The Smash.Hit.Repeat exhibition shows the works of around twenty artists from ten different countries. During the residency’s ten years of activity it has managed to build an interesting and diverse network of renowned international artists, never shown before in Finland.
Alongside the international guests, a group of local artists have been chosen to celebrate a certain aspect of the artist-residency: whether is it inspiration, a spontaneous encounter or the importance of cooperation. The exhibition theme – Repeat – has given birth to a range of works that explore the repetitive process in making, our contemporary society and also digitalisation in art.
This month’s artist-in-residence, the praised contemporary artist and curator YuGao from China, will be present at the opening, as well as there being a staggering concert of electro-music, performed by composer and musician David Dominique, the artist-in-residence from June.
The exhibition team consists of visual artist Lulu Halme, artist Ron Nordström and producer Kati Sointukangas.
The guest artists:
Sebastien Baverel/ Vincent Bonnefille (FR), Kesha Bruce (US), David Dominique (US), Maia Flore (FR), Mafune Gonjo (JP/SWE), Jun Itoi (JP), Aurore Le Duc (FR), Maria Lewis (SWE), Serge Marchetta (CA), Masha Ryskin (RU/US), Eva Vevere (LV), YuGao (CN)
And members of the local art cooperative Onoma:
