Anna Alapuro and Ilkka Väätti
19.2. – 14.5.2023
This exhibition recounts the joint artistic journey of Anna Alapuro and Ilkka Väätti. The two artists first met when they were students at Lahti Art School 1976 to 1979. Their art has been inspired by numerous shared and individual trips as well as stays at domestic and foreign artists’ residences over the years.
In Journey the two portray a vision that unfolds through decades unveiling reflections of society and the art world at different times. Figurative and conceptual paths merge and divide through the decades. Kajaani is an interesting waypoint on the artistic couple’s path. The journey continues.
