Pupuruusu - Silja Kejonen & Outi Vuoriranta
Opening: Tuesday, May 21, 19-21h. Welcome Welcome

Pupuruusu (Bunny Rose) is a work between installation and painting. The work consists of Silja Kejonen's watercolor
paintings and an installation and performance by Outi Vuoriranta.

Pupuruusu is about art canon, classic status and gender. We approach the subject through the bunny, especially through the bunny ears. Consepts are closely related to the bunny or the rabbit are wisdom / foolishness, feminine / androgynous, sexuality / innocence. Sex appeal and girlishness are often projected into the bunny.

This formed the basis for a portrait series of bunny women. The portraits are a commentary of the art canon and the images of power. Outi Vuoriranta talks with roses. A rose is a rose only when it's named a rose and not, for example, a cat. The work is a contrast to the controlled bunny portrayals. It examines power through naming and flowers. What does a rose really mean and what can you say with it?

Silja Kejonen (b. 1978) is an Oulu-based artist, dramaturge and writer. She graduated from the Lahti Institute of Art and Theater Academy Finland (department of dramaturgy). She has participated in several group and individual exhibitions since the late 1990s. Her first poetry collection Vihkilumen talo (Otava, 2017) which is shortlisted for the Helsingin Sanomat literature award. She is currently working on three different exhibitions and her second poetry book.

Outi Vuoriranta (b. 1977) is a Helsinki-based free-lance actor. She has appeared in several tv series, short films and radio plays. She graduated from the Tampere University Degree Program in Theather Arts in 1999. She has worked in theathers Avoimet Ovet, National Theather and Teatteri Telakka. Silja Kejonen and Outi Vuoriranta form an artistic partnership, building a feministic garden. In their work they examine the traces of shame and memories.

Pupuruusu is a mixture of an installation and paintings. The work consists of watercolor paintings by Silja Kejonen and installations and performances by Outi Vuoriranta.

Pupuruusu is an art canon that deals with classical gender roles. These themes are addressed by the figure of a bunny, especially by his ears. Bunnies or more Bunnies are often associated with wisdom / stupidity, femininity / androgyny, sexuality / innocence. Especially sex appeal and a certain girlhood are often interpreted into her.

This is the foundation of a portrait collection of bunny women and thus a certain commentary on the art canon and the powerful images. The second part of the exhibition consists of an installation in which Outi Vouriranta speaks with Rosen. A rose is a rose, if you call it that, not a cat, for example. These works are a contrast to the controlled-looking bunny portraits, they examine the power of names and flowers. What does a rose really mean and what can you say to it?
