Mika Karhu: paintings and installations, tm•gallery 18.5.-5.6.2022–
We are living in an unstable era in Europe and it affects us all. People’s lives are fragile and easily broken, as we have now seen during the war in Ukraine.
My exhibition deals with people whose destinies or their characteristics have been silenced or not recognized from the point of view of the exercise of power. It is a collection of portraits of the fates of both children and artists. They describe the presence of ill-treated people, those who have been subject to the exercise of power and forgotten. They describe forgotten pain and loss of life.
Doctor of Fine Arts, visual artist, researcher
