Põhjaveed 29.7. – 21.8.2016
Põhjaveed introduces a group of young Finnish artists who work with the methods of painting, printmaking and photography. The exhibition in Monumental Gallery builds up atmospheres showing different aspects of the strange and unknown. The artists all have the same goal: to make artworks that take the viewer through various realities, exploring light and moment, the surrealistic flow of the subconscious and memories.
Kaija Hinkula’s paintings from the serie Indian Express shows fast and spontaneous paint strokes with exotic vibe. Paintings can be seen as an abstract journal of travels to other countries and cultures, but also as representations from new visual enviroment and energy. Hinkula uses an abstract and intuitive painting method to create these visions.
Jussi Nykänen uses photography and monotype to create surrealistic beings in landscapes around the North that he values and has travelled by himself. By combining two different techniques he wants to combine the findings of visible and invisible world. The artist himself has called his works “pantheistic icons”.
Emma Peura finds themes to her eerie prints from dreams and hidden feelings. To her, art is all about the balance of revealing and concealing. The weight and character of a printed line embodies more purpose in her works than any color in the world could.
Janette Holmström’s dreamlike photographs are oftentimes dominated by
picturesque surfaces – in a way they look like paintings. She creates them through filters and reflections, using camera to explore the relationship between human and nature. In her works you can also find the layers of time, places and emotions.
All four artists have graduated from Saimaa University of Applied Sciences (BFA) in
Imatra, Finland, in the years 2008-2012. They have previously held a joint exhibition titled ITÄÄ (=EAST) in Gallery Rantakasarmi, Helsinki, in 2014. Another thing in common with the group is the house of Krimi, a commune that for years has been the home of many artists-to-be in Imatra.

ENDEGRA meeting in Imatra 7.8. – 13.8.2016
The ENDEGRA-meeting in Imatra, Finland is a continuation of the international printmaking development, research and co-operation project started in Mölndal, Sweden, in 2009. The workshop is organized for professional print makers and students of printmaking. It is a European network that unites print makers – from Greenland in the north, Scotland in the west, Spain in the south and Russia in the east – to cooperate, study and develop printmaking in a joint forum that allows for different kinds of exchanges. Several workshops, lectures, trips and demonstrations on prospective new trends and materials will be arranged during the week in Imatra.
The 8th International Printmaking Biennial of Douro 2016 10.8. – 31.10.2016
“The 8th Biennial of Douro without limits.
Based on the oldest demarcated wine region in the world – the Douro and winner of two heritages of humanity granted by UNESCO is world renowned both for its vineyard landscape and for the archaeological heritage of the Côa Valley. Here is the largest sanctuary of Paleolithic engraving of the world, but the Douro is also in the contemporary scene one of the biggest events of graphic art in the world, creating a strength and dimension that goes beyond the borders of the country and is projected for infinite horizons.
Pursuing this aim and ambition achieved, the Biennial of Douro has overcome the challenges of interiority, the economic crisis, the cultural crisis, the engraving crisis itself and it has kept alive the assumptions of the art and the autonomy of the printmaking in the context of the contemporary art. To this end, have contributed the traditional printmaking and its secular alchemy, but also, the renewed trend of digital printmaking and the new media at their disposal, in order to give it the autonomy it needs to survive. The open field to the printmaking by the new hybrid languages and nontoxic techniques , have designed it impact in an innovative way and with the vitality so long desired in its fields.” The Curator, Nuno Canelas
