La Primavera
1.10. – 16.10.2016
Galleria Huuto Jätkäsaari – Jätkä 1 and Pikkujätkä

Turakka Purhonen and Viita’s joint exhibition has been inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s tempera painting (ca. 1482) named La Primavera by Giorgio Vasari. The exhibition includes Viita’s 16 mm film with its surface hand-painted with organic marks and Turakka Purhonen’s sewn and embroidered sculptures that almost turn into flesh.

The works in the exhibition deal with the idea of spring – growth, a child’s transformation into a fertile adult, the awakening of sexuality and finally independence. The process is often painful and aggressive but a necessary part of one’s life cycle. Botticelli’s La Primavera proves that growth is an age-old theme that has fascinated humankind during all eras. It includes a promise of continuity and emergence of new nations.
