"Voi perkele?"

From Dyeus Pater to Zeus (Greek), Juppiter (Rome) ja Tyr (norse mythology).
Baltic and Slavic Perun and Perkunas. 
 The familiar Perkele, likely the same as Ukko.
A supreme God from mythology to the other, ruler of the skies and holder
of the lightning. Or an old fiend, the Devil himself, the dark ruler of Hell?

Kuljin uria tuntemattomia. 

Niitä pitkin kerran,

vaelsivat hahmot tuuleen kadonneet. 

Laulunsa voi vielä kuulla,

ikilehdoissa, aarnioiden siimeksessä. 

Muisto ajan haamujen, piirtyy horisonttiin 

- kasvot pilvissä nälkiintyneet, hampaissa ajan saarrettu.

I walked the paths forgotten.

Along them once,

wandered the folk, vanished to the wind.

One can still hear their song,

within depths of groves and woodlands.

Drawn to the horizon, memory of the ghosts of the past.

Teeth of time, surrounding the face formed of clouds, starving.

 

The overarching theme of the exhibition revolves around how the victors write history,
how religions devour other religions and how – as a result – the ancient history
is distorted into a mere shadow of its former self.

 

From these concepts the artists fashion the framework, through which they observe,

envision and bring life to visions and glimpses – two artistic processes meld into one to form

strange windows to the ancient history, drawn and painted with two distinct styles. 
Each artwork has a textual component, blending together with
the artworks to create a poetic and narrative entity.

 

The exhibition is essentially a visual narrative. Different techniques intermingle and

create a story composed of six artworks. Within, the relationship of acrylics and ink symbolizes

the inevitable stream of time and how the prosperity of old transforms into something bland and gray.

Sneak peeks of the artworks:

Heikki Harmainen and Ronja Rikissa are illustrators and artists from Tampere. 

In the exhibition Heikki operates with colorful acrylics and Ronja

mainly with black ink and white acrylic.

 

Heikki has worked in the library of Lielahti as a librarian and is now finishing his 

studies in the field of information science and interactive media in the University of Tampere.

He is mainly self-taught, for whom artistic expression has always been close to heart.

Heikki also does illustrations, graphic design and game design.

He is from Pieksämäki, Southern Savonia. 

Ronja Rikissa has a wide experience from the field of  marketing and has graduated as a BBA.

She is now working as an illustrator, graphic designer and an artist and also finishing

her studies in the field of cultural management in the Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, 

focusing on illustration and graphic design.  Ronja is mainly self-taught but she studied
