Growing It, Losing It
Hair In Contemporary Art
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | If the hair is fine, everything is fine! Hair is no matter of insignificance in human life, or art. Hair is part of the body, but forms a special whole of its own. For visual artists, hair sometimes has a surprisingly powerful symbolic value as material, but also as the bearer of stories, meanings and notions.
15.6.–8.9.2019
Kati Leinonen – Äimärautio
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Äimärautio, a series of photographs by photographer, MA Kati Leinonen (1974–) shot between 2015 and 2017, explores the relationship and coexistence between human beings and horses using photograph, video and sound. Leinonen, who started horseback riding when she was seven and still rides almost every day, knows the different communities and the current forms of the hobby closely.

Shared dreams
Works from the Heino
Art Foundation collection
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Artists are masterful at taking “reality” and re-creating it, stretching and bending it and sharing it. The featured works, by some 60 artists, are an opportunity for visitors to dive into a veritable ocean of strange and wonderful visions and imaginings and to leave everyday life behind, as surreal as that too may at times seem.
