KATI LEHTI Magical realism at Rööperin Taidesalonki Takahuonegalleria 2.7.-20.7.2014

Iso Roobertinkatu 48-50
 
Lehti's exhibition "All Kinds of Dreams Are Haunting My Mind at Nights" continues her previous production with mythical fantasy worlds, that reinterpret the relationship between man and nature. Lehti's view of the nature of this relationship is absurd, but playful, bringing strange creatures to be viewed. In the works of the exhibition many natural things seem a little queer, but there is nothing threatening in them. Peace and harmony will remain in the worlds described by the works. Wretchedness of life and at the same time its beauty is repeated in the works. The exhibition is populated by, among others, different hybrids, cyclops, and skeletons.
