Exhibition by Linda Linko at Garden Room

Exhibition by Linda Linko 16.01.– 02.02.2020 at Garden Room. Tue–Fri 12-18, Sat 12-16, Sun 12-16 (Mon closed). Welcome!

Dreams, scars, hope, loss, and finding paths to new phases in life. The feeling visual artist Linda Linko experienced when she arrived in Litibu, Mexico, was one of instant recognition and deep belonging. Mesmerised by the rawness of certain rocks, completely covered in bright green seaweed, she first discovered the reflections that now inhabit the heart of her series ’Drunk from Love’. Painted and drawn on paper with oil pastel, acrylic, graphite pen, crayon and ink, Linko’s female figures and abstractions radiate in glowing colours, even in such shades of neon she might not habitually use. What once seemed endless, becomes momentary: every wound contains a possibility for healing. In these works, realities and fantasies collide, and bodies entwine. And so, Litibu is transformed into a place that’s simultaneously painfully real and merely a dream — tangible and intangible, physical and spiritual at once. An inner world of love and peace that lingers.

”When I close my eyes, I can still see those rocks.”

Welcome to Lux Helsinki 4–8 Jan

Lux Helsinki lights up the city along a new route on 4-8 January 2020! Installations are open to the public daily from 5 pm to 10 pm. If you want to avoid the biggest crowds, you might want to pop in at Kämp Galleria first for some eats & drinks or fantastic season sale treats and catch the magnificent light installations later on in the evening!

Lux Helsinki is a bright spot in the winter that will once again present a diverse range of top Finnish and international light art from 4 to 8 January 2020. The official route comprises nine installations and stretches from Senate Square through Kaisaniemi Park to the beautiful Tokoinranta shoreline. The route is designed as a dramaturgical series that should be seen in numerical order from start to finish.

The light art festival presents a diverse range of light art in different forms along a new route each year stretching for more than a kilometre along the streets of the Finnish capital. In addition to highlighting some of the most iconic buildings in Helsinki, the route also reveals less familiar courtyards and façades. In addition to the nine main installations along the route, the light festival will feature six satellite installations and groups of installations outside the city centre.
