Wed 28.10.2020 11.00 EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modert Art
The world can be a troubled and knotted place, and Eeva-Leena Eklund's works echo this. Eklund's paintings are firmly anchored in reality and observations of it. Motifs for her work may include the fabric of a sofa, tomatoes, her grandfather's wartime postcards from the battlefront, or streetscapes. Eklund looks beyond everyday curiosities; at the windowsill where unattainable longing has been replaced by staring animal figurines made of porcelain.
Kenzi Rinno’s photographs take us back to the beginning of the 1970’s, when Espoo was a quickly changing municipality in the middle of a hectic change into a city. The grain fields had to give way and new neighbourhoods were built to meet the needs of the growing city. The change in the cultural landscape has been well preserved in Kenzi Rinno’s photos.
Please come and explore the lost landscapes of the 70’s!
