Hanna Peräkylä’s collection of works Change of Scenery deals with the definition of the landscape and its modification, short-sighted patching and incompleteness. The name of the exhibition, Change of Scenery, refers to both the landscape and the scene – the artificial structure, rearrangement and layering of the landscape.  

The exhibition consists of multidimensional textile works, the parts of which have been used in particular various found materials referring to the construction industry: electric cables, wires and various cargo cloths, which together builds a landscape installation to the gallery space. The latest works are three-dimensional landscape paintings, made from recycled textiles and random, twisted  steel frames.  

With the exhibition ensembles, Peräkylä has been looking for new ways to develop her work in a  more spatial direction. She strives to create a layered image from the painting, which is equally affected by the viewing angle, environment, depth and partly movement. The collection of works has been on display at Taidekeskus Itä in the spring of 2023, but some of the HAA Gallery’s works are on display for the first time.  

TaM Hanna Peräkylä (born 1984) is a visual and textile artist from Kouvola. Her works have dealt with the themes of consumption and one’s material relationship, defining a place and incompleteness. Peräkylä’s works are characterized by multiple reuses of different textiles, a strong sense of material and sculpturality. Her objects of interest are the space, the diversity and the shape of the painting.  

Peräkylä graduated from Aalto University’s School of Arts and Design in 2013 with a master’s degree in textile art. She lives in Voikkaa, and works in her studio at Kuusankoski’s Taideruukki. Peräkylä’s works are included in the collections of Kouvola Art Museum Poikilo and the University of Namibia. Peräkylä was awarded the visual artist award of the city of Kouvola for the years 2023–2025. With the recognition, the artist will hold a solo exhibition at Kouvola Art Museum Poikilo in the spring of 2024.  

Peräkylä’s work is supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation’s Kymenlaakso Regional Fund. The exhibition has also been supported by Kymin Osakeyhtiön 100-vuotissäätiö.
