The core themes in the works of Maija Blåfield (born 1973) are the ambiguity of reality and humans’ relationship with their surroundings. The exhibition features both moving images and photography.
While the works are filmed in different parts of the world, their exact location is not precisely defined. Instead, the central element is our everyday observation and experiencing it in a different way. In spite of the serious tone and topics of her craft, Blåfield’s documentary works always include a notion of subtle humour, as it is also essential to reality.
Alongside new works, the exhibition features Blåfield’s films from the years 2005-2020.
The exhibition is curated by the Finnish Art Society.
