Claws and connections exhibition is a feast highlighting the most precious aspects of artistic research: works and practice of art. It is the first full-scale artistic research exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts of Uniarts Helsinki. It hosts contributions from 34 artist-researchers or collectives, among them doctoral and postdoctoral researchers and MFA alumnae from the Academy of Fine Arts and Uniarts Helsinki.

Claws and connections is a parade of artistic research where parts of the display changes over time. The exhibition consist of propositions that inhabit the space in a more permanent manner and works and gestures that take the centre stage for a shorter time during the event programme. Installations, sounds, paintings, videos, performances, interventions, exercises, excerpts, workshops, sculptures, and scores, will have chance to show their claws and suggest new ways to connect.

Claws and connections is a forum of artistic research that invites visitors to experience artistic research on its home field. Here experimental arrangements, research gestures, processes, and artworks perform their epistemic twists and turns on their own terms in a pluralistic and generous ensemble.

Claws and connections is a venue for new encounters, collegial dialogues and peer-to-peer learning. Welcome to wonder, reflect, and discuss – in medias res!
