22 January – 28 February
My exhibition deals with the purpose and distribution of information. I continuously come across different deliberate misrepresentations of information, in various situations, which is sometimes so distorted that it almost becomes transparent. Distorted or deliberately altered forms of information can be found in all different kinds of situations from the news to letters to the editor.taidemuseonäyttelyarkisto

Tommi Toija’s mystic but delicately sweet ceramic figures, Strangers, cover the floor of the main gallery at the Jyväskylä Art Museum. Standing in the midst of these ceramic figures the viewer is forced to ponder their relationship with themselves and with others, individually and as a society. We are softly reminded of the fundamental questions of existence raised by Paul Gauguin in his 1897 painting Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?taidemuseonäyttelyarkisto
The common thread of this exhibition runs along edge between painting and drawing. Within the artwork, drawing turns into painting and various spaces in limbo and periphery fields are born. The artwork questions the traditional juxtapositions of painting and drawing: is the work representational or abstract, where is the line drawn between colour, what can be called black and white. The artwork displays unwavering aesthetics, impending romantics, but also a modernist straightforwardness that sits easily with Fins.
