erið velkomin á opnun „Well, Well, Well“ - einkasýningar Önnu Niskanen í Associate Gallery laugardaginn 17. september kl 15

Með sýningunni „Well, Well, Well“ kynnir Anna Niskanen ný verk sem byggja á ljósmyndum frá ferðalögum hennar um Ísland. Viðfangsefni Niskanen draga hana reglulega hingað til lands en mörg verka hennar fjalla um vatn á einn eða annan hátt og er íslensk náttúra þar gjarnan í forgrunni.

Vatn er fyrir ofan, að framan, utan, innan og innanundir. Það gusast og rennur saman til að vera um kyrrt. Speglar sýn og hylur líf. Það bráðnar, flæðir til móts við strauminn, safnast fyrir, gufar upp í ský, flýtur með vindinum, hellist úr og sameinast flæðinu, frýs þar til næst.

Anna Niskanen (f.1990) er finnskur listamaður sem býr og starfar í Helsinki. Verk hennar eru prent og skúlptúrar sem byggja á ljósmyndun. Hún hefur sýnt í Finnlandi, á Íslandi og víðar. Niskanen er stjórnarmeðlimur Sambands finnskra ljósmyndara, meðlimur Sambands finnskra grafíklistamanna og stofnmeðlimur listamannakollektífsins Kosminen. Anna er gestalistamaður á vinnustofum SÍM í Reykjavík þar sem hún dvelur nú í fjórða sinn.

Sýningin er opin um helgar kl. 14-17 og eftir samkomulagi

ᴇɴɢʟɪsʜ ‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾ Welcome to the opening of ‘Well, Well, Well’ - a solo exhibition by Anna Niskanen at Associate Gallery on Saturday, September 17th at 3pm

With ‘Well, Well, Well’, Anna Niskanen presents new work based on photographs taken on her travels around the country. Niskanen’s practice regularly draws her to Iceland, where she sources much of her subject matter, often including studies on water in all its forms.

Water is above, in front, outside, inside and underneath. It is rushing and pooling to stay still. Mirroring the view, it covers life beneath. It is melting, flooding to meet the current, collecting to crowd and soak, steaming into clouds, ferried away with wind, pouring and joining the flow, to freeze until next time.

Anna Niskanen (b.1990) is a Finnish Helsinki-based visual artist. Her works are prints and sculptures based on photography. She has exhibited in Finland, Iceland and abroad. Niskanen is a board member of the Association of Photographic Artists of Finland, a member of the Association of Finnish Printmakers and a founding member of Kosminen collective. She is a returning artist in residence at SÍM in Reykjavik.

The exhibition is open weekends from 2 to 5pm and by appointment
