Porvoo Triennal 2024: Space Is a Common Thing

J. L. Runebergs home, Porvoo

  • 8.6.2024–1.9.2024

In the garden of Runebergs Home.


Roland Persson (born 1963) is a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm. He is active in the Nordic countries, but also around the world. He has created several public art projects.
Persson's art is characterized as painting-like, which can particularly be seen in his through-dyed silicone sculptures. Due to the technique used, the pieces may bear an amazing resemblance to their real starting points. The artist interprets the relationship between man and nature warmly, but also challenging it. Is technology an assistant to humans or are we already prisoners of it? The installation called The Machine Zone exists also between the artificial world and nature.

The Porvoo Triennial is an urban festival of visual art held every three years. It is based on partnership and community. At the heart of the event are art exhibitions set in different parts of the city. The Triennial brings together many well-known visual artists from around the world. At the Triennial, contemporary art comments on the citys temporal and functional layers. It confronts and challenges the viewer in everyday life, even in unexpected situations.

This time, art conquers the urban space under the title Space is a Common Thing. The theme is widely discussed from different perspectives: nature, environment, humanity, society, community, individuality, and different structures. Contemporary art contains diverse and critical positions on the state of nature and the search for extremes.

The artistic director of the event is visual artist Petri Hytnen and the curator is the Swedish artist John Rasimus from Falun.
