Susanna Autio, Anita Naukkarinen
Susanna Autio (b.1966) reuses analog films from movies. The transparent images made with a knife, a small brush and a magnifying glass are originally from for example a Risto Räppääjä movie and an old Nokia mobile phone advertisement. Detached from its original source, the image becomes something entirely new and unrecognizable when the scratched and detached pieces are rearranged. Autio is interested in the randomness of the technique and the transformation from image to abstraction. Studying the movement of the set of pictures has produced a series of moving pictures.
Autio is a member of the Association of Finnish Printmakers and Association of Finnish Sculptors. Her works have previously been shown in solo and group exhibitions both in Finland and abroad. Autio is studying for her master’s degree in printmaking. Works presented in this exhibition are a part of her thesis project.
In her project Choregus, Anita Naukkarinen (b. 1986) explores painting as a personal area of our being filtered by body memory.
Naukkarinen is a visual artist living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She graduated as a painter from Lahti Art institute in 2015 and is currently finishing her MFA studies in painting in the Academy of Fine Arts. Works presented in the exhibition are a part of her thesis project.
