Helsinki Contemporary presents work by Rauha Mäkilä and Camilla Vuorenmaa. Mäkilä and Vuorenmaa are of the same generation and have studied together at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. The artists both examine themes surrounding the questions of humanity, and what it means to be human, both in relation to the everyday life and the otherworldly. They both work in figurative painting, but with different starting points.
