Emmi Kallio and Tarleena Öhman
Something is wrong, but what? Home is a distorted gathering of objects, an animal molting its skin. Someone has bit out a piece of reality and spit out another. Wallpapers are rolling off the walls and mirrors show only a half reflection. Broken cups are leaking plaster and shoes are growing grass. There is a lump of cat hair purring on the bed. The shapes of the furniture are recognizable and yet there is something odd in them, as if they have forgotten what to be. Something is missing, something has broken.
Emmi Kallio and Tarleena Öhman are second year fine arts students at Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Koditon is a study of the encounter of the public and the private space, as they build in the gallery room a home without a home.
Ikuinen Gallery is a contemporary art project space located in the old factory complex Finlayson in central Tampere. The gallery is run by a board of fine art students in Tampere UAS School of Art and Media as part of their study program. Ikuinen Gallery’s main focus is in presenting interesting and high quality student work as well as work of other adventurous artists.
