Susanna Vuorio (b. 1977)
This the first time I take part in an exhibition in a poster form. I had the challenge of choosing a work that would work as a print. This is why I decided on a work that has a graphic, drawing-like character, and has not been previously publicly exhibited.
“Slot machine” continues a series of works that I begun in 2014 on the theme of shopping centers. The Yösäiliö gallery was previously a bank and my work also deals with money. The subject matter is very commonplace. Today people have addictions, routines, hope and misfortune. I leave the interpretation to the viewer as to what is loneliness or selfishness, what are reasons or consequences, where life takes one.
Susanna Vuorio, b. 1977, is a painter who deals in his work with contemporary social phenomena. She does not use models or reference images, instead her works are created through a spontaneous, improvisatory process of painting. Painting is to her a form of empathy, a way to become conscious of what is going on here. Ms. Vuorio has exhibited her paintings at several Finnish galleries and museums. Her works are in Finnish State Art Collection and Tampere Art Museum’s collection, among others.
Yösäilö (eng. Night Safe) gallery is vitrine gallery founded in 2016. The gallery is located at the entrance of Tampere Kunsthalle. Each exhibition is curated by one of the members of Tampere Kunsthalle. Works that consider the historical, political and economical context and the public space surrounding the gallery are emphasized in the curating process. Yösäilö gallery is free of charge for the artist.
Tampere Kunsthalle (former Tesoma Kunsthalle) is a is a collective, self-organized studio and do-it-yourself-exhibition space all in one.
