Remade in Kallio is an exhibition in Kallio Kunsthalle consisting of the results of my two-week visit to the meeting place Elokolo in Kallio, while I have been on a residency at HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme in April and June 2013 as a part of the Changing Places programme.
Elokolo, situated next door to Kallio Kunsthalle, is a place where people can come during the day to socialize, read the papers, have some porridge or a cup of coffee. For two weeks I took part in the daily activities of Elokolo by painting people. Painting is time consuming. As I was doing my work, people were telling me their life stories. I want these voices to be heard where my paintings will be seen.
