There’s a non-existent peace in the uncertain quietness.

“These words by Fernando Pessoa inspired us to search for pieces portraying sensitivity, freedom, hope, light and peace; something to make you stop and forget about the world around you for a moment,” say Villanueva and Sillgren.

The fifth Artoteque Pique Nique exhibition ‘There’s non-existent peace in the uncertain quietness’ in the Lobby Gallery was curated by Niina Villanueva and Salla Sillgren, members of the Board of the Turku Artists’ Association.

Turku Artists’ Association, the operator behind the Turku art lending service, set up the series of exhibitions to offer communities in Southwest Finland a new form of collaboration and the chance to exhibit the pieces of local professional artists in the Lobby Gallery of Kunsthalle Turku. The Artoteque Pique Nique exhibitions are put together by an external curator or art expert using the sales collection of the art lending service, currently consisting of more than 800 pieces from 153 local artists. The curators and experts represent partners of the Turku art lending service (Arte, Turku Printmakers Association, Jöötti ry and Photographic Centre Peri).

Artists of the exhibition: Elisa määttälä, Johanna Naukkarinen, Sanna Vainionpää, Eero Nives, Henri Tuominen, Miina Laine, Milla Hannula, Sini Kähönen, Taru Salonen, Reeta Giger.

As all the other works of art at Turku art lending service, all the pieces can be purchased or rented.
