23 February – 2 June 2013
We are very glad to be able to show Channelled, a visually rich and thought-provoking group exhibition based on the thinking of visionary Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862–1944). The exhibition features works by her and by contemporary artists Carolus Enckell (Finland), Olav Christopher Jenssen (Norway/Germany), Joachim Koester (Denmark/US), Christine Ödlund (Sweden), Silja Rantanen (Finland), Nina Roos (Finland) and Emily Wardill (England).
The exhibition title refers to the significant concept of inspiration, which originally meant ‘breathing in’, something that is breathing through you, or that you are precisely ‘channelled’ by this something. Inspiration and its crucial importance to practitioners of both science and art have been intensively discussed at various times since the emergence of Romanticism in the 18th century.
