a Journey through dreams and layers of the mind
Jun 6 – Oct 7, 2018
The Jyväskylä Art Museum exhibition production, Other Realities takes the viewer on a journey into a world which is both familiar and unknown.
– In choosing the artwork, our attention was particularly drawn to inexplicable, mystical and dreamlike pieces, says the Museum’s Head Curator Jukka Partanen.
The purpose of this exhibition is intended to act as a reminder that the power of art is precisely in its ability to drift beyond reality.
The exhibition presents a selection of local and international artwork acquired by the City of Jyväskylä since the year 2000. The artwork in this exhibition is either from Central Finland or made by artists with a connection to Central Finland, by Finnish printmaking artists or from the international printmaking triennial Graphica Creativa, and the LUMO international triennial for photographic art.
The author, Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen has written short stories about artworks by Kati Immonen, Jari Haanperä and Alessandro Bavari. The dramatized recordings of these stories can be listened to in the Finnish language in mobile guide www.tarinasoitin.fi/toisiatodellisuuksia
