Art Odyssey 2021

The exhibition from the world of science fiction

Art Museum Gösta 6.11.2021—17.4.2022

Art Odyssey 2021 is an exhibition inspired by science fiction. The exhibition presents works of eight contemporary artists in which influences from both literature and films can be discerned. In the selection of works, the focus has been on videos, sculptures and other spatial works of art.

The opening view on arrival at the exhibition space is like the opening scene of a movie. Something has happened, only the consequences of the event remain, and it is up to the viewer to draw conclusions. The presentation of the exhibition utilises the gigantic dimensions of the Serlachius Manor annex’s large exhibition hall, such that the exhibition takes over the entire hall from floor to ceiling.

The artists are Lauri Astala, Petri Eskelinen, Roland Persson, Joseph Popper, Tiina Raitanen, Kimmo Schroderus, Magnus Wallin and Charlotta Östlund. The exhibition is curated by Petri Eskelinen and Kimmo Schroderus.
