Lauri Kolttola
Trace Environment

The artist is present August 28th and 29th at 12-5 pm.

The themes of the Trace Environment exhibition come from the environment where one can see human traces and the relationship between people and the environment.

The human traces that shape the environment are extensive and long-lasting and always present in the human environment. They often escape attention due to their abundance and broad spectrum, affecting both the ground and other living creatures. The nature of human traces is influenced by the current needs, aims and ideals. Their spectrum forms beauty, life support, usability, control, one-sidedness and subordination.

The Trace Environment exhibition is based on the artist’s numerous walks during the coronavirus pandemic. On these walks, he has paid attention to human traces in the local environment. Combining elements of drawing and painting, the works have been inspired by the artist’s personal observations, together forming an exhibition that examines the spectrum of human traces.

Lauri Kolttola is a Helsinki-based artist and architect.

The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland’s Arts Council of Uusimaa.
