Destination is an exhibition that tells by means of contemporary art about departure and arrival.


When you leave your home behind, when your home street, business, relatives, playmates, grandmother, school and pupils, local restaurant and newspaper seller are now there, somewhere. In a new city, new homes, a strange language, strange people await you. You must get used to the food, and the fact that the light and colours are different.

These situations and the emotions intertwined with them are commonplace nearly everywhere in the world. By the end of 2022, there were over 100 million people in the world who have fled their home district. Of these, over 35 million are refugees, 62 million internally displaced and over 5 million asylum seekers.

Destination brings together twelve Finnish contemporary artists whose work explores the themes of abandonment and the discovery of the new. Some of the works use documentary means to tell the story of forced emigration, its causes and consequences. Some confront the viewer with the emotions that the people who left their homes encountered in their flight. Both regret and relief are present in the works.

Stefan Bremer, Kalle Hamm, Dzamil Kamanger, Joel Karppanen, Zagros Manuchar, Luciana Mariano, Melina Paakkonen, Anu Pentik, Sepideh Rahaa, Kaj Stenvall, Kirsimaria E. Trnen and Ilkka Vtti.

Curator: Veikko Halmetoja
Concept: Jarkko Lehtopelto
