Women, Masks and Wilderness

Art and Museum Centre Sinkka, Kerava

  • 5.9.2020–10.1.2021

Kerttu Horila feat. Samuli Heimonen, Jenni Hiltunen, Eeva Peura, Elina Ruohonen


This autumn, Sinkka will be taken over by Kerttu Horilas (b. 1946) funny and touching ceramic characters. In this partially retrospective exhibition, viewers are transported into the world of animals, womens costume parties and fairy tales where things never quite turn out how they were written. Horila is known as a portrayer of women and theatrical divas. Posing in the paintings of Jenni Hiltunen are the women of the selfie era.

In Horilas latest artworks, people take on the figure of an edgy house cat, rabbit or wolf mother. At Sinkka, these hearty, self-aware and rebellious creatures are joined by Samuli Heimonens wolves. Masquerading is a common theme shared by both Horila and Heimonen. In Elina Ruohonens paintings, the balance of power between humans and animals is flipped. Humanity is infused with other living and lifeless nature.

On the top floor of the exhibition, the viewer is moved into the world of an aging woman and old fairy tales that have gone awry. There, the story is governed by aged Peter Pan and other fairy tale characters, that are juxtaposed with Eeva Peuras mysterious paintings.
