Heta Kuchka & Minna Leinonen: Here and Away

05.12.-22.12.2019

Opening / Avajaiset  05.12.2019  h. 17:00

Here and Away takes the viewer on a journey to the favourite places of the original members of defunensemble: an untouched forest, the bunkers of Taivaskallio, the open sea, the neighborhood of Kallio, and an amusement park. The musicians were deeply involved in every part of the creative process, giving viewers insight into their individual personalities. Spending time together at their favourite locations was a valuable and inspiring creative method. We hear the wind playing the flute by the open sea, a duet with a clarinet and a bird in a sunny forest, a harpist imitating a rollercoaster, a pianist depicting the sounds of his neighborhood in Kallio, and an interpretation of the cellist’s childhood memories. The journey culminates in the musicians returning to each of these special locations to perform a private concert for the landscape. In the gallery, sounds from their favourite landscapes blend together creating a common space. Coincidense was important for the creative process. The musical composition is based on improvisations and while filming, the locations provided various pleasant surprises.

This exhibition would not have been possible without the great commitment of Hanna, Mikko, Emili, Lily and Maukku. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We would also like to thank Timo for his rigorous skills and patience.
