Näyttely #80 – Current


10-vuotisjuhlanäyttelymme keskiössä on ajatus vedestä, virtauksesta, joka sulavasti liikkuu eteenpäin koskaan varsinaisesti pysähtymättä.

Lokal Gallery
Annankatu 9, Helsinki


Water, as a current moving eternally forward, is the central theme of our 10 year anniversary exhibition. The word current is also a reference to something happening or existing in present time. Current captures both movement and being in the present moment. Water then, as an element, is in itself without form, and for that reason it always takes the form of an existing vessel, object or place. Likewise, an art object gives a form to different materials, thoughts and feelings.


Current, as a concept, beautifully mirrors Lokal and the 10 years of its existence; the ability to give form, to flow forward, thus forming ourselves. Most importantly, however, we are existing now, currently, and we live for the current moment.


We invited artists who have become important to the core of our existence, and who’s works we have exhibited numerous times over the years: Renata Jakowleff, Antrei Hartikainen, Sasha Huber, Aimo Katajamäki, Matias Karsikas, Nathalie Lautenbacher, Outi Martikainen, Naoto Niidome, Rasmus Palmgren and Kristina Riska.
