The exhibition Matters of Time. Artists from Finland has been organized in conjunction with Finland’s appearance as Guest of Honour at the 2014 Frankfurt International Book Fair. It brings together works by eight artists and artist duos and offers an in-depth look at the diversity of approaches within contemporary Finnish art. Using a variety of media, including photography, video, sound sculpture, computer animation, and the arrangements of objects, the exhibited works heighten the awareness of the passing of time and allude to metaphors of transience. Matters of Time takes as its point of departure the Deleuzian concept of “becoming,” in which the continual flow of time opens up the potential for individuals in the process of becoming to experiment with various modalities of living and being.

A diverse program of film screenings, performances, and talks accompanies the exhibition. 

Participating artists/ artist duos: Maija Blåfield, Tommi Grönlund & Petteri Nisunen, IC-98 (Visa Suonpää & Patrik Söderlund), Mikko Kuorinki, Minna Långström, Salla Myllylä, Elena Näsänen, Pink Twins (Juha & Vesa Vehviläinen)

Curated by Holger Kube Ventura

Kindly supported by FILI—Finnish Literature Exchange and Frame Visual Art Finland. The exhibition is part of the art and culture program Finnland. Cool. Frankfurt Book Fair. Guest of Honour of 2014.
