Attend an afternoon artist talk with exhibiting artist Essi Kuokkanen and gallerist Hanna Huiti.

Kuokkanen paintings speak to a sensitivity to a different way of being. The visible world and its norms are questioned in her works, in which the viewer comes across sweating or weeping flowers and a lemon suffering from its own reflection. The artist’s strong use of colour reinforces the experience of viewing them.

Galerie Anhava will present works by Essi Kuokkanen alongside Anne-Karin Furunes for CHART, bringing into dialogue two artists from different generations.
