00100 Helsinki) May 17 and closes June 20, 2013. There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 16.
Gottberg uses motifs of quiet and tense moments--times when something is soon to happen or has just departed. Her work channels expectation that lingers through interiors--furniture, reflections, draped fabric. You the viewer, is required to loo at the paintings and experience this expectation.
Gottberg is a 1989 graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts. Her first solo exhibition in Helsinki was that same year.
This exhibition is of Hashimoto's new kit installations and another, distinct, installation, Armada. The latter consists of hundreds of boats. Hashimoto uses illustration, motion and space to captivate the audience and brings about a sort of dialogue between humanity an nature. His kite installations combine drawing, painting and reliefs.
Hashimoto is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has had exhibitions in Europe and the USA. In addition to this exhibit in Finland his work will shortly be shown in Germany, Sweden and Italy. He currently lives in New York City.
