Maija Blåfield: Roadside Narratives

Kunsthalle Helsinki, Helsinki

  • 21.1.2023–5.3.2023

Maija Blåfield’s works engage in a dialogue between the peculiar and the everyday.


In artist and film director Maija Blåfield’s documentary works, events turn into stories. The works in the exhibition Roadside Narratives seek new ways of seeing the reality that surrounds us –– whether experiencing a forest landscape deemed a national treasure, or seeing life through the eyes of a person who considers themselves a saviour of the world.

As an artist, Maija Blåfield is first and foremost a storyteller, and her works always include a subtle touch of humour. Blåfield, who has filmed her cinematic works all around the world, directs her camera to the surprising crossroads of the ordinary and the extraordinary.

The exhibition, produced by the Finnish Art Society, features moving images, a series of works combining photography and text, as well as illustrations. Two decades of work are on display.

Maija Blåfield (b. 1973) is a multidisciplinary contemporary artist and film director. Her cinematic works navigate the grounds between experimental film and documentary film. In addition, Blåfield also works with photography and writing, among other media. Her works have been presented in Finland and internationally, in art museums and galleries, as well as at film festivals and on television. Blåfield was awarded the Finnish state award for media art in 2014 and was nominated for the prestigious Ars Fennica award in 2017.
