Taidehalli - Susanne Gottberg




The summer exhibition of Taidehalli The Third Factor includes 
Susanne Gottberg's (b. 1964) stunning glass studies and glazes on plywood, 
as well as this impressive installation At the Same Time Elsewhere 
created together with sculptor Markus Kåhre (b. 1969).


The installation consists of large sized plexiglas paintings hanging from the ceiling. Both sides have been painted describing everyday situations and looked at from a bit different standpoint or a moment later. This installation was very impressive, and the scenes or views of big-sized works (300 x 200 cm) were dreamy. In the dark hall when I passed through these surrealist characters the feeling was unreal or nightmarish. You can think that scenes are flashes from a city, perhaps from Helsinki; simultaneous scenes occur indefinitely. The child is swinging, the mother is waiting at the door, someone is run over by a car ... The idea and implementation of this installation was awesome.



This sympathetic room just called to step inside. The door was invitingly open.




Together 2019 & Together Later in 2019


In her paintings with restrained colour scheme Gottberg focuses on glass studies. Most of us recognize these cheap pressed glasses. Glass has inspired Gottberg to look at shine and reflections. In paintings the glass is alone or one inside the other, washed upside down in big piles ... The backgrounds are restrained, sometimes the glasses have a marimekko-like reflection. The exhibition also featured some objects on plywood boards, where the faults of the wood were perfectly visible.



Gottberg was awarded the Finnish Art Association Ducat Prize in 1991 
and she was elected Young Artist of the Year in 1994.

  13. Riitta - I got a sense of the installation from the first photo, but it seems you would have to be there to fully appreciate its brilliance and the emotions emanating from the overall set-up. Thanks for letting us glimpse the creativity through you - and thanks for a second link-up to Mosaic Monday!
