Mia Hamari

Mia Hamari (1976) lives by a river, in the forest, in Simo. Surrounded by nature, flowing rivers and sunlight, or lack of it, the environment she lives in not only influences her mind but also shapes the work at any given time. The season, sun, wind, rain and snow all leave their own marks on wood. Ideas for characters come from past lives, dreams and the subconscious. Hamari adds natural materials to wooden figures, like hair, eyelashes, parts of accidentally killed animals.

Mia Hamari graduated from Sculpture Department of The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2004. She has taken part in numerous gallery and museum exhibitions in Finland and internationally.

 

#FocusFinland

Finnish art is represented largely at the ARCO fair: 13 Finnish Galleries are participating and additionally there is a FocusFinland Pavilion , which presents the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art . Each gallery will present an exhibition stand with the works from one single artist per gallery. Finnish galleries have not made such a comprehensive co-operation of Finnish art export ever. At Forum Box we are proud of being able to participate in this significant project.

 

The Finnish programme at the fair has been curated by Leevi Haapala from Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki.


#FocusFinland is a joint effort of various organisations. The programme is coordinated by Frame Visual Art Finland. The programme at the fair is a collaboration between Frame and the Finnish galleries in the ARCOmadrid programme. The Kiasma Lounge is hosted by Frame and Kiasma. The collateral programme is organised by Frame, the Finnish Institute in Madrid and the venues in Madrid.

*****************************

Forum Box osallistuu helmikuussa espanjankielisen maailman tärkeimpiin taidetapahtumiin kuuluville ARCO Madrid -messuille. Suomi on tänä vuonna vahvasti edustettuina messuilla osana #FocusFinland -ohjelmaa. Forum Box esittelee messuilla kuvanveistäjä Mia Hamarin uusimpia töitä.


Suomen messukokonaisuus koostuu 13 galleriasta sekä #FocusFinland-paviljongista, jossa esittäytyy nykytaiteen museo Kiasma. Jokainen galleria esittelee omalla näyttelyosastollaan teoksia yhdeltä taiteilijalta. Suomalaisgalleriat eivät ole tehneet aikaisemmin näin mittavaa yhteistyötä suomalaisen taiteen viennissä. Forum Boxissa olemme ylpeitä että voimme osallistua tähän merkittävään projektiin.


Suomen messukokonaisuuden on kuratoinut amanuenssi Leevi Haapala Kiasmasta.


#FocusFinland on monen toimijan yhteisponnistus. Ohjelmaa koordinoi Visuaalisen taiteen keskus Frame. Kokonaisuus messuilla toteutetaan yhteistyössä mukaan valittujen gallerioiden kanssa. Kiasma Loungen toteuttavat Kiasma ja Frame. Oheisohjelma toteutetaan yhteistyössä Suomen Madridin-instituutin ja näyttelypaikkojen kanssa.
