“I am a socialist-anarchist-individual-collectivist-individualist-communist-aristocratic-democratic” was the answer the influential American research journalist Henry Demarest Lloyd (1847–1903), gave when asked of his political views. Lloyd was uninterested in categorizing himself and instead brought forward the complex relationship between the private and the communal. Lloyd’s answer is the starting point for the exhibition curated by Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen.Jyväskylä Art Museumexhibition

"In this exhibition, we approach football as part of landscape and urban space, the cultural stratification of football and landscape. We have sought milieus to be photographed for example with the aid of maps and webcams. Football is a wonderful game; as its simplest its beauty is expressed in goalposts made of sand on a beach, or a goal made of birch trunks. We hope that our photographs present the poetic beauty of football and the landscape, while reinforcing our awareness of the game and its cultural meanings."

The New Cubism exhibition brings three internationally up and rising young artists to Jyväskylä. Mikko Ijäs, Sami Lukkarinen and Liisa Lounila share; a common interest in our visual observations as humans, and the innovative use of contemporary techniques to present their work. Ijäs’ drawings, printed on canvas, were drawn on a computer, an iPad and an iPhone; in the spirit of cubism. Lounila’s work utilises different technical devices such as temps mort effects and the red-green glasses through which three-dimensional images can be observed.Jyväskylä Art Museumexhibitionarchive

Ritva Kovalainen (1959) and Sanni Seppo (1960) contemplate our human relationship to nature through their photographs and two short films. The exhibition reveals nature from three different perspectives: as a cultural, a wild, and as an industrial space. The exhibition’s subtitles; The Island of Spirits, Softly Sways the Ancient Pine and Silvicultural Operations, describe the directions from which we are invited to approach the kingdom of the trees.

- I am grounded for the third night. On Monday I got a letter from Mother in which she stated that I could no longer go home. That was apparently decided with Mr. Orava (Mr. Squirrel) earlier in the spring. It’s just that no one had bothered to tell me the truth!Jyväskylä Art Museumexhibitionarchive

”A current slogan repeated on a daily basis, is that ‘we have to get away from the comfort zone’. The comfort zone refers to a person’s natural state of being, which is somehow related to being numbed in a routine of rigidity. To me that doesn’t seem very enjoyable. This phrase also includes an unpleasant, forced element of someone knowing what is best for you, more than you know yourself. And after childhood this should not be the case.”
