Ida Palojärvi & Hanna Marno are part of the artist-run collective of Gallery Oksasenkatu 11 in Helsinki that has been exchanging shows with ID:I galleri since 2017. Exhibited at ID:I galleri are two installations that form a dialogue that alter the viewer’s observation of perception.

Ida Palojärvi

Blur Experiments

In the new work Blur Experiments presented at ID:I Galleri she works with long, almost spearlike objects pointed at the viewer. The objects are arranged in a dark space and lit in a specific way. The work aims to bring forth an experience of non-recognition, where imagined movement and stillness of the objects come together. The objects are suspended in the gallery space, but the viewer finds herself as if unable to focus her gaze on them, unable to recognise their contours or outline clearly as if she was watching the objects in movement.

Ida Palojärvi (b. 1981) graduated from Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts as Master of Arts in 2016. She has created works both in solo shows and as part of group exhibitions. Palojärvi’s works are installations built in a given space. They often blur, shift or tilt the focus of the everyday vision of the viewer.

Hanna Marno

Descending, Ascending

What’s left is the inviting, soothing- yet deterring and alarming odour of some sort of a cleaner lingering in the air.  Inside are undefined and uncertain objects that are placed inside the gallery as if the space was installed according to the previous artists fixture on the wall.

The objects’ materials are: repurposed found white plastic items, paint, soap, “live” candle light led and plastic icebergs on/under shelves.

An artwork is still submitting to be an object that fills its’ cubicle space in the atmosphere.

In a topsy-turvy world art would be immaterial and the experience would be material.

Each created object takes part in this discussion.     

The work process behind the installation at ID:I galleri is a combination of meticulous and haphazard sculpting between the exhibition space and the studio. Some of the work is ready only when the microwave goes ding.

Hanna Marno (b. 1981 in Helsinki) is an artist who lives and works in the countryside of Lohja in Finland.

She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki and Pittsburgh Filmmakers. She works mostly with narrative site-specific work, still-lives in landscape and installation art that suggest the viewer to re-determine their surroundings.

Thank You :

GREY HERON

Visiting hours Sat – Sun 8.-9.7 at 12 to 4 PM

Opening reception on Friday 7.7. at 6 to 8 PM, warmly Welcome!

Grey Heron is a collaborative installation between Hanna Marno and Ella Tahkolahti of the Oksasenkatu 11 gallery. It is the first part of a gallery swap between ID:I galleri Stockholm and Oksasenkatu 11 Helsinki.

Grey Heron is a site-specific installation built for ID:I gallery that is a staged replication of the street view of Tjärhovsgatan. The taxidermic heron in the window of Öppet becomes a patient witness and a motive. In Egyptian mythology the Fenix bird is represented as a Grey Heron.

Having that there is no knowledge of the reality that lies within the facade of Tjärhovsgatan, we decided to provide an alternative interior from the perspective of the Grey Heron.

Ella Tahkolahti (born 1981 in Espoo) is a visual artist who works with installation and performance. Her main interest is in the relation of reality and image, the dynamics between spectator and the space, or the “non existing” artwork that only occurs in the encounter with the piece.

Graduated from the Time & Space departement of  Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2010. Member of Oksasenkatu 11 collective since 2014.

Hanna Marno b.1981 is a Helsinki based artist who lives and works in Nummi-Pusula. Her work consists of fictional narratives, translation and manuscripts. She works with sculpture, poetry, still and moving images. She’s a member of the Oksasenkatu 11 gallery – artist collective since 2013.

Concurrently she’s working on a street art project Horse Poem No. 1-23.
