Distractions, reflections

David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders


2007/11/02 Contemporary art at Kiasma, Helsinki

Posted on November 02, 2007 by daviding

I’m a fan of contemporary art, and the Kiasma is one of my favourite art museums in the world. On Friday nights, admission to Kiasma is free. Karlos and I had plans to meet for dinner, so I suggested that we take a quick browse of the exhibits. While there’s a video documentary playing in the stagelight constructed by Tuomas Laitinen, the observer becomes a part of the exhibit titled Lighthouse Vol. 1.

I liked, from Kiasma’s permanent collection, Drought Circle by Richard Long.

I also liked the an installation by Radoslaw Gryta called A long time ago, gazing at my own landscape. I’m don’t quite have the full picture, but another art lover has posted a video on Youtube.

The exhibits change every few months at Kiasma, so I’m never sure what installations will be available on any given trip to Helsinki. This visit had more exhibits than caught my eye on the last visit, but not as many as the very first time when I was totally wowed.
