Perälä’s exhibition Ei mitään hätää is open in Tiketti Galleria until 26th
of August. Painted with acrylic and oil pastel on canvas the artwork emphasizes
both environment and plants. Through them the exhibition proposes a question about time, it’s
structure and meaning – in this time that we call new.
bases are resilient plants in their unnatural environment. Culms and leafs conforming the space given
to them the artwork ponders on our need to control our environment from
subjective perspective. The flower theme is a continuum to Perälä’s previous
exhibition. Observing nature and our unnatural actions has always been part of
her works, even in its more abstract forms.
Like the Vanitas
paintings from the Seventeenth century the plants in Perälä’s exhibition remind
us about our mortality in a new context. Unlike Nature morte, dead and
suffering nature, the flowers of sixth generation extinction are still blooming
and conforming the space taken by us. The toughest ones will continue to do so
even after us.
