Kristian Jalava: Spring Reception
Spring Reception is the MFA graduate exhibition of Academy of Fine Arts student Kristian Jalava. The exhibition takes place during the vernal equinox and is centered around a series of magazines tied to the calendar. The gallery space becomes a slowly revolving publication, which the artist edits during the exhibition. From the reception space the visitor is invited to the space of action – and beyond it.
Kristian Jalava (b. 1980) received a degree in photography from Turku Arts Academy in 2009. He works within the media of photography, publishing and installation. In addition to his exhibition practice Jalava holds photography workshops for different groups. He is currently finishing is Masters work on the camera obscura at Aalto-University’s Visual Culture and Contemporary Art - program (ViCCA).
On Monday the 20th of March at 12.29 PM (10.29 UTC) we celebrate the vernal equinox at the gallery.
