Keke Leppälä’s photo exhibition focuses on the diamond of urban urban culture: skateboarding. The exhibition reflects the freedom of the sport and also addresses those who are not dedicated to skateboarding.

Skating differs from traditional sports in its freedom, openness and creativity. You can skate with anyone, almost anywhere and anytime – only the imagination sets the boundaries.

In skating, you can forget about training times and jump on the board when you feel like it. That is probably one of the reasons why the species attracts even those who, from the point of view of the majority, are not winners or belong to the ranks. There is room for everyone in skate culture.

During the corona period, many hobbies and cultural endings ended up like a wall. With Skateey, the opposite happened: boards from the skate shops were sold out when skaters took over the streets.

Urban culture may often be downplayed and pushed aside when replaced by “more important” or more profitable proposals, as in the case of the Suvilahti DIY skate park. However, the city’s rugged cultural treasures are an important part of the core of urban life, which is also reflected in the works in the exhibition.

Skating is difficult at first and requires hard training. Persistent repetitions, attempts and mistakes always lead you forward. It’s a good lifestyle guide: don’t give up too easily, but keep going until you succeed. Sometimes it can take a long time, but the more awesome the feeling is when you learn something new and the trick succeeds.

Skedeys is primarily about having fun with friends – skating right where people and a suitable urban environment happen to be. The pictures tell their own strong story and entice you to step on the board.

The exhibition is open during Caisa’s opening hours.
