Natures is built around the theme of landscape. In their exhibition works, each member of the group presents their own view on the theme. Nature grows and shapes itself over time, disintegrates, runs wild and assembles itself into new formations. The landscape exists in spite of us. For us, it is a vital structure: the horizon, upper world and lower world. We try to objectify the landscape, but we are always within it as well. An artist can take nature into account by taking an interest in ecological materials such as recycled fabric as a painting surfaces, earth and plant pigments and alternative painting techniques.
The featured artists are Inka-Maaria Jurvanen, Hannele Kumpulainen, Iisa Maaranen, Pia Männikkö, Miika Nyyssönen and Sara Orava. The exhibition curator is Miika Nyyssönen.
