    Abstract

    The Reciprocities exhibition artists shine a critical light on society’s structures and on the values that define them. The exhibition continues Artsi’s exhibition series on societal issues and is on display 12.2–30.5.2021.

    Reciprocity is based on mutual interaction in which both sides respect and treat each other the same way. Artsi’s exhibition brings together contemporary artists and works that deal with power relations, practices and systems in society. These structures categorize groups of people or individuals according to how well they match the prevailing norms.

    The exhibition’s themes can be found in various parts of people’s lives, for example, in health care, in work, and in everyday routines. Who do we depend on? Who has the power to decide on the issues that affect us, and how do those decisions influence our lives? What is a norm? The exhibition is set against the current exceptional situation, which has made these questions more relevant than ever.

    The majority of the works in the exhibition are new. The artists are: Matti Aikio, Lauri Astala, Jessie Bullivant, Antti Eskelinen, Harold Hejazi, Nayab Noor Ikram, Ali Akbar Mehta and varialambo (Varia Sjöström, Hatz Lambo), Aleksi Pietikäinen, AnnaLeena Prykäri, Sepideh Rahaa, and Caroline Suinner.

    Narrating WAR / HABITAT 1 (I see so much when I am dying), performance by Ali Akbar Mehta and varialambo, as part of the RECIPROCITIES group exhibition curated by Christine Langenauer at Vantaa Taidemuseo ARTSI, Vaanta Finland.
