The exhibition presents interpretations of the landscape by four ceramic artists: Åsa Hellman, Eliisa Isoniemi, Kirsi Kivivirta and Johanna Rytkölä. The exhibition features sculptures, wall art works, installations and vases. The artists have a long history of multidisciplinary collaborations. In addition to domestic exhibitions, the group’s activities are international, and works have been exhibited in Milan, Faenza, Stockholm and Heidelberg.

ÅSA HELLMAN’S  subjects include landscapes and natural phenomena: snowstorms, rain, vegetation, and water life. By depicting the landscape in clay, she simultaneously depicts phenomena in nature and her own soul landscape. www.asahellman.net

ELIISA ISONIEMI’S  “Karjan evakkomatka” (“Cattle Evacuation Journey”) depicts a wartime landscape where women walked hundreds of kilometres with their cattle to evacuate Karelia during World War II. In the works  ”Kasvoilla” (“On faces”), the landscape is placed on the face with colours and glazes. The sculptures depict the experience of the weather through different senses: the flicker of the sun and the wind on the skin, the smell of spring on the breath, the sting of wolverine on the cheeks. www.eliisaisoniemi.com

KIRSI KIVIVIRTA The urbanizing landscape, living environment, its architecture and even everyday spaces are the starting points for the content and form of Kirsi Kivivirta’s work. Her works, which consist of numerous pieces, are often monochromatic and based on repetition. In the works, the scenic horizon forms a calming element. www.kivivirta.com

JOHANNA RYTKÖLÄ’S  works focus on seas and lakes as part of the landscape, the current state of the world’s waters and water as personal memories and experiences. Oily, splashing and dripping ceramic glazing complete the final result. Rytkölä’s works are characterised by clear forms and playfulness. www.rytkola.fi
