My Home Somewhere

Vantaa Art Museum Artsi, Vantaa

  • 12.1.2024–1.9.2024

The exhibition examines the meanings of home through different perspectives. It raises the question of what is meant by home and what factors make up a home.


The home is one of the key places for the construction of a persons identity. Often, the concept of home refers to security, warmth and peace, but home can also be associated with feelings of insecurity and lack of belonging, for example. The experience of home and its meanings are always formed individually – home means different things to different people.

Artsis My Home Somewhere exhibition examines the meanings of home through different perspectives. The themes of the works in the exhibition include migration and being a refugee, family relationships and the space and objects at home. The exhibition raises the question of what is meant by home and what factors make up a home. Is home always a concrete place, or could it also be a state of mind?

The exhibition has mainly been compiled from the City of Vantaa art collection. In addition to works from the collection, the theme of the exhibition is complemented by a few invited artists. An artist selected through the project The Narratives of Finland – Historical Culture, the Arts and Changing Nationality”, Ukrainian multimedia artist Spartak Khachanov will also participate in the exhibition.

In Vantaa, public art also creates a sense of home and belonging. As part of the exhibition, we present works of public art chosen by Vantaa residents themselves, which have brought memories and meaning to the lives of the people of the city.

The exhibition is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the City of Vantaa. The theme of the citys anniversary is At Home in Vantaa”.
