Raisa Raekallio (Kittilä, Finland) and Misha del Val (Bilbao, Spain) present at tm•galleria their new series of paintings Uusi normaali / New Normal created in collaboration between March and June 2020, at their aitta-studio in Lapland, where the artists live and work. Uusi normaali is the artist couple’s debut exhibition in Helsinki. The works, that incorporate elements from theatre, literature and religious traditions, and flickering glimpses of the Northern scenery, may be a reflection on how the artists themselves, despite their different backgrounds, upbringings and languages in Basque Country and Lapland, have found a reliable, comfortable place at the table to sit and come together: the arena of painting.
Meet the artists on Saturday August 15th at 2pm.
