Markku Hakuri & Jan Kenneth Weckman: The Magic Mountain

Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art, Vaasa

  • 14.4.2022–11.9.2022

Markku Hakuri (b. 1946) and Jan Kenneth Weckman (b. 1946) joint exhibition The Magic Mountain is displayed in the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art.

 

Markku Hakuri (b. 1946) and Jan Kenneth Weckman (b. 1946) joint exhibition The Magic Mountain is displayed in the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art. The two artists have had two exhibitions together before and now their works are shown in a concluding trilogy. The basic idea of the exhibition is a dialogue between two artists and a mutual exchange of ideas about literature, visual arts and social global upheavals.

At one point, Thomas Manns classic novel Magic Mountain (Der Zauberberg, 1924) emerged, and the timeliness and symbolism of its content inspired the invigorating collaboration. The Magic Mountain is metaphorically working as a starting point for the artists, with their different expressions and artistic style offers different interpretations and inputs to the thematics of the exhibition.

In this exhibition, Hakuri shows drawings made with ballpoint pen and watercolor alongside larger works that use mixed media on veneer. His works are pictorial stories – archeology of the mind. The drawings are based on a three-year project in which Hakuri randomly selected a press photo from the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat on a daily basis and transformed it into his own mental landscape. Some of these themes also reappear as details in the larger works. Alongside Hakuris figurative but at the same time imaginative works Weckmans abstract or semi-abstract works take place.
