Eeva-Liisa Puhakka, Where the wind blows
*Included in the price: entrance fee
Eeva-Liisa Puhakka has been named the Artist of Kouvola City 2020–2022. The exhibition features installations, sculptures, photographs, kinetic sculptures and works incorporating sound and smell.
Memory, time and space, the relationship of humans and animals and their coexistence all feature in various ways in Eeva-Liisa Puhakka’s works. Her family background and home are clear in her themes: old machinery and equipment, vacated buildings of the countryside, the relationship between old and new work, the memory of places and the religious sects of the neighbouring village. Her works are narrative and spatial. In recent years Puhakka has mainly been creating installations and kinetic sculptures. She wants the viewer not just to look at the work of art, but to feel, hear and smell it. We all have at least five senses. For Puhakka, it is important to combine the digital and physical world.
The exhibition is at Poikilo Kouvola Art Museum from 17 June to 5 September 2021.
