Ea Vasko can easily be called one of the most innovative artists from the Helsinki School. She has been working abstractly since the beginning of her artistic career, with her work taking an outstanding position within the Finnish art scene of the early 2000s. Even now, Vasko remains one of the few artists from this platform that continues to operate outside of figurative art. Staying true to her initial ideas, her work questions the basic principles of photography from the act of seeing to the objectivity of an image. Furthermore, she interrogates the different mechanisms of human perception, such as valuation or categorization. Vasko’s interests lie in an urban environments ability to fluidly move and change over the course of time. She utilizes reflections as a method of testing the limits of abstraction, sometimes driving her initially figurative subjects to a point beyond recognition. The exhibition will present a selected group of works, all which deconstruct various aspects of architecture and spaciality, and investigate further into our relationship towards urban space and space that is not perceived at all.
