Material Poetry

Mauri Korhonen, Kalle Turakka Purhonen

In the joint exhibition of Kalle Turakka Purhonen and Mauri Korhonen surprising materials are used for artworks: Chewing gum is moulded into a likeness of Smiling Boy (a known Finnish school prize), erasers and painters’ easels are formed into an altar piece. Everyday objects and even trash are used in collages and sculptures which examine and comment on life. At times there is a search for truth and at times the artists get carried away with language games.
