Art Gallery – contemporary art for passengers
The crackling red piece by Hans-Christian Berg invites passengers into the new Art Gallery exhibition at Helsinki Airport, which displays dark-toned visual art by Visa Norros. The exhibition, included in Finavia's Art Port concept, is this time all about the cold and dark Finnish weather.
The works of art by Norros bring a peaceful moment amid all the hustle and bustle of the airport. The first impression of his works changes when you stop for a while to take a good look. The art surprises you. You find your own views and interpretations in them.
As a counterbalance to the toned-down expression by Norros, visitors enter the exhibition by passing "Light Space Linear Momentum" by Berg. Its shape is based on the rhythms of an EKG. The work of art illustrates the moment when the heart stops beating. The plastic strips of the photogenic piece, built in the form of a jet engine, also look like a red airplane turbine.
