‘Observatorium’ is the result of the work produced by the participating artists of the South-North Circuit (SNC) by Koynē program. SNC is constituted as a tour of latitudes with the intention of integrating the experience of six participating artists in a circuit of five art residencies throughout the geographic south and north.
Along the way there are encounters, disencounters and re-encounters between the participants who undertake a work that questions and reconsiders the unpredictable relationships generated when interacting with different spaces, customs and materials. From our point of view as participants, the works show how this process transforms the relationships that are evolved in the exchanges of exploration.
The exhibited works and the artists’ process allow us to reflect on exchanges that are formed at different scales. With this we are talking about the explored environments, the cultural traditions established in different geographical areas, their process of adaptation to that environment and the ecosystem itself as a multiple agent that inter- and trans-relates.
The artists invited to participate in the 2022-23 residency circuit are Paola Torres Nuñez del Prado (PE), Kira Leskinen (FI), Sadet Hirsimäki (FI), Sofia Magdits (DE/PE), Dunja Krcek (AT) and Antonio Paucar (PE).
The SNC project has been supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland (TAIKE) and The Nordic Culture Fund (NKF). The visit of the Peruvian performance artist Antonio Paucar to Finland has been supported by the Ibero-American Institute of Finland through the TelepART program.
Maa-Tila project space is located 350m from Sörnainen metro station & 250m from bus stops 2409, 2413 & 2411. There is Zone 2 on-street parking directly outside the gallery. The entrance to Maa-Tila project space is on street level with thresholds of up to 6cm at the entrance, and a door width of 77cm. The toilet has a 2cm threshold but is not spacious enough to meet accessibility standards. The nearest accessible toilet is located 50m away at Sörkan Ruusu, however, their ramp is only available on request, and during opening hours.
MAA-tila is a project space, place for discussion, exhibitions, encounters and spatial experiments.
Koynē program by Arcaica ry is inspired by the concept of art as a lingua franca, a common language and a communication channel, through which artists, residencies, cultural professionals and researchers can connect without borders and exchange knowledge, techniques and sustainable materials.
