I run my bare arm along a white painted stonewall. With my fingertips I swipe the cotton ribbon of eemelikello. I’ve built the system out of cardboard, cotton ribbon, and a brass paper fastener. The ribbon sways and starts measuring time. (Time unit: how many touches ago).

Eemelikello is a joint exhibition by Anna Broms and Verna Joki located in Oksasenkatu 11 gallery. The exhibition features e.g. hand-drawn animations, soft sculptures, and a moving image from underwater.


Anna Broms

The matter never rests.

The delicate organic cotton batiste reacts to everything: the wind, humidity, and touch. In unison with other materials and the weather conditions, the works gain skin-like properties.

Anna Broms is a process-oriented painter. She creates situations, fragile and porous installations. Rather than solid objects, her works can be seen as subjects in a constant state of transformation.

Anna Broms holds an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki. Currently Broms has a studio residency in Helsinki International Artist Programme (HIAP) Suomenlinna in collaboration with University of the Arts Helsinki Foundation. Her work has been funded by Kone Foundation and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

Verna Joki

Verna Joki is a Helsinki-based visual artist. She makes digital drawings that often take the form of animation, as well as ink drawings on paper. Joki draws from perception things that she finds fascinating. In both life and art, she is interested in minutness, simplicity and ease.

Verna Joki holds an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki. Her next solo exhibitions will be seen in the summer of 2023 in Pori at the Poriginal-gallery and in Tampere at the Art Center Mältinranta.
