"Pimeässä en ole neliraajainen" (In The Dark I Don’t Have Four Limbs) is an exhibition curated by Jussi Koitela that presents art work by Alma Heikkilä, Mikko Lipiäinen, Arissana Pataxó and poetry by Reetta Pekkanen. Alma Heikkilä's spatial and painterly objects materialize the entanglement of natural, cultural, social and economic aspects of agency. At the same time, agencies – from hydrocarbons to language and from fungus to infrastructures of artistic production – are co-authors of her works. Heikkilä's collaborative work with the artist Elina Tuhkanen are also presented in the exhibition. Mikko Lipiäinen has worked since 2015 in South Bahia, Brazil, with artist and activist Regis Bailux and researcher Raquel Rennó on the project Resistance Pulp. Here, he took part in organizing a series of discussions and workshops with educators of the indigenous Pataxó community. In addition to producing local pulp, the project maps and challenges practises, narratives and structures within contemporary art that are, in different ways, reproducing the repression of indigenous communities. Arissana Pataxó approaches contemporary indigenous questions through her artistic and educational practices within the local community in South Bahia. Through her poetry, Reetta Pekkanen searches for connections between human perception, material reality and everyday moments in a time with drastic earthly changes within our living environment.
The exhibition is part of Finland’s celebration of 100 years of independence in Norway. It is supported by the Finnish Norwegian Cultural Institute, Norwegian Finnish Cultural Fond, Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
