Residency

Harri Pälviranta

Photographer Harri Pälviranta is both fascinated and sickened by violence. Through his body of work, he confronts places, means and victims of violence head-on, almost in a photojournalistic way - enabling the viewer to viscerally resonate with the brutal sceneries he depicts.

Project

The Powers That Be

The exhibition The Powers That Be, on view at the Station Independent Projects in New York from July 17 to August 9, 2015, takes as its point of departure the knowledge of the body and the manifestations of physical energy. The thematic will be discussed through an ensemble of contemporary and avant-garde works of the past.

Residency

Elina Aho

Experiencing art can bring forth a heightened sense of perception, a peculiar state of awareness where the now is the only thing that matters. For visual artist Elina Aho it was the touch of charcoal on paper that initially ushered her into that state of flow and triggered a deep love for art.
