Amos Rex’s 2024 exhibitions deal with empathy, trauma and atmospheric data

Share

In 2024, Amos Rex will make room for feelings. Its first major collection exhibition puts the focus on individual experiences and emotions. Meanwhile, Josefina Nelimarkka explores the various forms taken by water, our ability to envisage unseen events in the atmosphere, and the human connection with clouds and the environment. Autumn sees the opening of an exhibition of Larissa Sansour’s installations and video works dealing with grief, memory, and transgenerational trauma.

In the I feel, for now collection exhibition opening at Amos Rex in March 2024, our personal experiences and emotions take over. The more than a hundred selected artworks from the 1960s up to the present take us from isolation to empathy, from euphoria to nostalgia. There is also a new addition to the collection by Hans Op de Beeck, whose solo show attracted long queues in spring 2023. The exhibition is curated by Katariina Timonen, Kai Kartio, Kaj Martin and Krista Mamia

The collection exhibition includes a commissioned work by the London and Berlin-based international artists collective Keiken. The visitor’s own experience is at the heart of this installation consisting of silicone wombs that engage our senses of touch and hearing, while reinforcing our connection with other species. This is the first in Amos Rex’s series of artworks that make innovative use of technology while subjecting it to critical reflection. 

Josefina Nelimarkka’s The Cloud of Un/knowing, to be shown at the same time, lifts our gaze to the heavens. In her exhibition Nelimarkka, who works in Helsinki and London, investigates the different states of water. It contains new works that change in an instant, materials that stimulate the senses, and atmospheric-data-driven technology. Local weather data and scientific measurements acquired from the Arctic regions in real time are transformed into light, sound, and digital water droplets forming a subtle unity. The exhibition is curated by Anastasia Isakova

In the autumn, Amos Rex will host an intensely emotional exhibition by Palestinian-Danish London-based Larissa Sansour, in which the past and possible futures converge. Her video works and installations interweave current topics with imagined worlds through the lens of futurism, archival footage and even opera. The works in the exhibition – most of them created in close collaboration with the Danish writer and director Søren Lind – transform our understanding and awaken our compassion. The exhibition is curated by Terhi Tuomi

Mystiska mossjättar tar över Glaspalatstorget – Amos Rex utställning inbjuder oss att ifrågasätta och drömma på barns orädda sätt14.3.2024 10:40:08 EET | Tiedote

En grön mossjätte utrustad med skidor och stavar har anlänt till Amos Rex kullar, redo att utforska okänd terräng. Vandraren upplever att världen utforskas genom att resa, men också med hjälp av känslosinnet – speciellt via händernas beröring. Det är kanske därför jätten rör vid sin öppna handflata med ena handens två fingrar och formar tecknet som betyder att gå eller att vandra.

Salaperäiset sammaljätit valtaavat Lasipalatsin aukion – Amos Rexin näyttely kutsuu meitä kyseenalaistamaan ja uneksimaan lasten pelottomaan tapaan14.3.2024 10:40:08 EET | Tiedote

Vihreä sammaljätti varustettuna suksilla ja sauvoilla on kulkenut Amos Rexin kumpujen keskelle, kenties valmiina kartoittamaan tuntemattomia alueita. Vaeltajan mielestä yksi tapa oppia tuntemaan maailmaa on matkustaminen, toinen on aistien avulla – erityisesti kosketuksen kautta. Ehkä siksi jätti kertoo omasta tehtävästään koskettamalla avointa kämmentä toisen käden kahdella sormella. Viittoma toteutuu liikuttamalla sormia kämmenen yli, mikä tarkoittaa viittomakielellä kävellä tai vaeltaa.
