Ubiquity - art exhibition by Amanda Hellryd,9 - 17 December 2019
“Ubiquity" presented at Black Box Genesis shows new developed work during Hellryd’s artist in residency at Stundars Museum. Hellryd’s work interrogates the notion of the grid and terrain, combining a systematic response to nature with a sensorial experience of the body.
Her work evokes the tangibility of moving across land according to the grid, at the same time investigating the organic systems nature itself possess. The works use materials such as rope, steel wire and clay to create new trajectories and speaking of a language based on tangibility, temporality and intensity.
Furthermore, the material language speaks of substructure and corresponds to the mundane actions humans make use of to preserve the landscape, highlighting the small gestures and discourses - both present and absent.
The exhibition FLOWERS IN THE SHADOW is about abstract spontaneous expressions of the subconscious through colours and lines. Oscar Hagen is working from a meditative state, where a spontaneous visual language takes over and express itself trough Hagens subconscious movements in the hand as he paint. Inner landscapes of the mind takes form on the paper just like flowers are taking form when they flourish. Without knowing where the process is going it ends up being a form of therapy, where feelings and emotions express themselves through the subcouncious, like flowers in the shadow. The exhibition contains new works from 2019 where Hagen is using watercolour and ink on paper.

"Tarkkailin ja valokuvasin seitsemän kesän aikana kotiseutuni lammella pesivää kuikkaparia ja siellä vierailevia muita kuikkia. Havainnoistani ja valokuvista tein kirjan "Kuikanhuudon kuulumalta". Näyttelyn teokset ovat poimintoja kirjan kuva-aineistosta."
"For seven summers, I observed and photographed a pair of loons nesting on a pond near my home and other loons visiting there.
I turned these observations into a book "Kuikanhuudon kuulumalta". The photos in the exhibition are excerpts from the book's artwork."
On the occasion of the Film Premiere 'On Wings of The Raven -
Kaarneen siivillä' (September 28-29th, Vaasa), Black box genesis, in collaboration with Elokuvakeskus Botnia, is pleased to host the photo show by Eero Murtomäki at the art space.

The art work, completely experimental, touches the pictorial and conceptual sphere, giving us the impression that there is a temporal space error in reality!
'Valët e pamjes - waves of view' art exhibition by Emil Pejtamalli, June 7-13 2019
Emil Pejtamalli was born in Albania in 1989. After finishing his art high school in Elbasan, he moved to Italy, to Milan, where he graduated in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. In those years his canvases oscillated between a perfect balance of symbolism and surrealism, always bringing the unmistakable fine technique.
An important element for the artist, who also discussed in thesis, was the presence of the red color in his works and his symbolic values.
After the milan period, Emil moved to South Africa for some years, where he spent an inner period that was anything but peaceful.
But that storm of the soul brought to light a more conscientious and free artist, bringing out in his art the instinct of the gesture and more tribal figures.
Now the artist is back in Italy, in the city of Bologna, where he will finish his visual arts studies.
This exhibition collects art works exclusively from 2019, where we can see the new path undertaken.
L'occhio del nibbio - video 2019
'L'occhio del nibbio' is the first video experience for the Black Box Genesis artists. The team wanted to experiment this medium, with the stop motion
technique, for Terminal (a contemporary reflection inspired by Leonardo da Vinci) exhibition cycle. Taking the name from one of the most famous inventions of the Master, Valentina Gelain and Bekim Hasaj used the bird as a metaphor for change, for the need to move, sometimes, to survive. Move as many artists do in order to give hope to their vocation, having to follow the right current flying towards their destiny... a destiny that only the death can conclude.
'Untitled' art exhibition by Bekim Hsaj, April 26 - May 12 2019
The privileged subject for the artist is undoubtedly humans, in all its many and fragmentary facets.
Over the years his painting has undergone a slow but incessant process of evolution, traceable in the transition from realism to abstractionism. Human figures have begun to split up and articulate; the same canvas has undergone profound changes.
A constant evolution of his works must also be observed; the artist likes to rethink and re-contextualize the work continuously. In fact, the initial idea is often only the starting point of a process that can ultimately lead to a radical transformation of the work undertaken.
At the moment the artist is looking for a closer dialogue between work and environment, between color and concept, in search of a new artistic balance.
