Art Center Ahjo, Sysi Hall - Espoo Artists' Guild
“Fear of Ordinaryness” - Espoo Artists' Guild 16.2. – 6.3. 2022
What is ordinaryness and is it anything worth pursuing at all?
As visual artists, we must constantly consider issues related to ordinaryness and differentiation from the crowd. Am I unique and interesting enough? Can I find my own thing and how do I stand out from everyone else? Has this been done before and what’s new with my own artistic solutions?
The exhibition fearlessly presents diverse and polyphonic interpretations of “Fear of Ordinaryness”; Shying away from the norm but constantly drawing from it.
Artists participating in the exhibition are Sirkku Ala-Harja, Nina Forsman, Tapio Haapala, Katri Hakkarainen, Pekka Hannula, Maarit Hedman, Irmeli Huhtala, Sanna Juujärvi-Bremer, Pekka Kaikkonen, Krista Kortelainen, Marja Mali, Antti Minkkinen, Raúl Mejía Moreno, Veera Kaamos Pitkänen, Kari Puikkonen, Piia Rossi, Topi Ruotsalainen, Maija Santala, Saila Saranpää, Pertti Summa, Elina Tammiranta-Summa, Sofia Wilkman and Noora Ylipieti.
