Johanna Lecklin & Henna-Riikka Halonen Participating in International Group Exhibitions
Johanna Lecklin (b. 1972) and Henna-Riikka Halonen (b. 1975), together with Milla-Kariina Oja (b. 1976) participate in a group exhibition “She peoples a space with images of realms, moods, rooms, ghosts and stars“. The exhibition can be seen at Espacio Trapézio in Madrid, Spain until October 12, 2015.
The three artists have all gained international recognition and work mostly with the means of moving image and photography. Their works actively reflect the nature of realities and the possibilities of their interpretation.
Henna-Riikka Halonen is presenting an installation, Eden, The Po(w)der of Fear. The installation consists of a short film, drawings and a poster, and is continuation for a performance Halonen constructed for Lilith Performance Studio in Malmö, Sweden during spring summer 2014.
Two moving image works by Johanna Lecklin are featured in the show, The Cage (2015) and A Christmas Tale (2013). Lecklin is interested in experimenting with storytelling. Both of the works are inspired by recorded stories from her storytelling project Story Café.
