Myrtillius Kauria’s Modern Slavery Exhibition in Pertin valinta Gallery 8.-30.9.2023.

Myrtillius Kauria’s Modern Slavery is an HDW commissioned exhibition, which will be on display at the Pertti’s Choice Gallery 8.-30.9.2023. Hakaniemenkuja 2. The gallery is open Wed-Fri 2-6PM and on Sat 11Am-3PM.

Myrtillius Kauria is a self taught artist who works in Outsider Art Festival’s OAF Academy, a new art programme funded by the Kone Foundation. The theme of the programme is power. Exhibition is curated by Pekka Elomaa.

Kauria’s rya rag and animation works highlight the life of modern slaves, economical challenges and social exclusion, cronic feeling of unworthyness and fear for the future.

“Unlike traditional craft work mythologies my work feature every day life experiences of poor and marginalised people. Despite the heavy thematics, my art works are hilarious, playful and slighly irrational.”

In addition to the exhibition, Pertin valinta and HDW host to Talks events: In Pertin valinta 8.9. at 5PM and in Merikortteli on Friday 15th at 3PM.
