Automatic – duo exhibition in Paja Galleria Helsinki 

The Finnish artist Markus Jäntti and the French-German artist Oscar Veyrunes open their first duo exhibition Automatic at Paja Galleria in Helsinki with a new body of works including paintings, monotypes and sculptures. This project reflects the artist's ongoing exploration of the shifting moment when products become cultural myths and symbols. In his paintings and prints, Jäntti investigates the figures of horses, unicorns, roses and cars. Veyrunes, on his part, develops a specific weaving methodology of wire meshes around domestic objects. This dialog creates a hybrid environment where the familiar – toy car, pillow, flowers, cartoonish figure – is counterbalanced by peculiar and unforeseen moments. At times, the works seem like memories, already somewhat vague and elusive, punctuated unexpectedly by details wafting in from other contexts.

The exhibition will open on Thursday 01.02.2024 at 5 pm.

Opening hours:

Mo–Fr 10–17
Finissage: 30.03.2024, 14–19
Vanha Talvitie 9, Helsinki
