The work created in Jyväskylä for Äkkigalleria 35, focuses on issues that have recently been at the forefront in current social and political debates including:
Borders and Boundaries
Borders without Boundaries
Spatial histories
Temporal Permanence
Cultural landscape
Cultural mosaic
Perpetual Intersections
The artists approach their work with these subjects in mind to create a new body of work. Allowing the viewer to experience these difficult issues from the visceral and intellectual perspective of art.
