Anna Torkkel: Present

To 16.11. klo 18–20 Sorbus-galleria
La 18.11. klo 15 Galleria SIC

Anna Torkkelin uusi teos Present pyrkii kohti sitä haurautta ja pehmeyttä, jota olemme. Esitys ehdottaa, että olennaisin on tässä, näkyvillä ja nyt-hetkessä. Teos jatkaa Torkkelin monivuotista työskentelyä läsnäolon ja yksinkertaisuuden parissa.

Titanik-galleriassa Turussa kantaesitettävän teoksen jokainen esityskerta tapahtuu eri tilassa ja rakennetun näyttämön suojasta riisuttuna. Joka esitys on ainutkertainen, uusi ja ohikiitävä tapahtuma. Esitys nähdään Titanikissa ja Kutomolla Turussa, Sorbus-galleriassa ja Galleria SICissä Helsingissä sekä Wäinö Aaltosen museossa, Turussa osana Kehonkuva-näyttelyä.

Ilan Manouach: Shapereader

Photographic Gallery Hippolyte
3.–19.11.2017

Suomenkielinen käännös tekstistä tulossa pian.

In the winter 2013 Greek artist Ilan Manouach, known for his conceptual comic books, travelled through the north of Finland and came up with an idea of a graphic novel readable to blind readers. He devised an entirely new language composed of sculptural, touchable symbols and patterns, which are pieced together to tell a story of two climatologists on an expedition to the North Pole. The protagonists are pursuing research for an ice column that contains records of climate changes of past ages. They hope to decipher those cryptic patterns, pretty much the same way the readers of Arctic Circle engage with the work.

Arctic Circle is a tactile novel and the first narrative work told on Shapereader – a system of ideograms carved on boards and read through fingertips. It consists of an expanding repertoire of free-floating tactile ideograms (tactigrams) intended to provide haptic equivalents for all the semantic features, the conceptual functions and textual attributes. Shapereader is unbound by the particularities of ethnic and native alphabets and Braille code. Its design, based on criteria of simplicity, easiness of memorization and distinguishability addresses all users regardless of their nationality, language, educational level, or subsistence under any visual handicap. The system is intuitive and doesn’t involve any technical training to learn.

Shapereader is exhibited for the first time in Finland at the Photographic Gallery Hippolyte, in collaboration with Saari Residency.

Shapereader is funded by Koneen Säätiö.

Address: Yrjönkatu 8–10 courtyard, 00120 Helsinki
Opening times Tue-Fri 12:00–17:00, Sat-Sun 12:00–17:00, Mon Closed
Free admission
