The opening of Monday solo exhibition

I was invited to participate to the making of the official Portrait of the President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, together with 100 young artists from Finland.
The portrait was published the 4th of May 2018 and will be exhibited to public in the Ateneum Art Museum in Helsinki during June 2018. 


For my piece, I decided to photograph a young Afgan asylum seeker Sadiq Bahrooz and use his right cheek for the portrait. I had just met Sadiq and at the time of the picture, during summer of 2017, it was still unsure if Sadiq could stay in Finland, as he had received two negative decisions from the migration office. His dream of finding a safe place in Finland to start over his life after a long journey was close to failing. This was a person who had learned Finnish, found a job and a place to study, had made friends and was helping in his free time other asylum seekers to adjust to Finland. I was taken by his efforts and still could not help him. Some of the xenophobic reactions towards the asylum seekers coming to Finland and Europe made me tremble.

So I wanted to include his picture to the Official Portrait of Sauli Niinistö, as a reminder that Finland should be open to everyone, and we should work towards a
multicultural and tolerant country. It may sound like an utopia, but a rich country like Finland, can afford it. I now live temporarily in Singapore, and what amazes me the
most is the beauty of religions and cultures living every day life together with respect for each other.

Flush -  Päivi Koskinen, Sasha Huber, Heidi Lunabba, Petri Saarikko, Petri Ala-Maunus, Juhana Moisander and Minna Suoniemi
Helsinki City Hall’s Virka Gallery blurs the borders between the public and the private with its Flush! exhibition, which is on display in unconventional places – the expansive public washrooms and their adjoining lounges in the City Hall.

The City Hall washrooms are open for the public throughout the City Hall opening hours free of charge. As all public washrooms, there are separate facilities for men and women. Flush! respects this separation of genders in the selections of art by putting on view different selections in the men’s and women’s rooms.

The curators of Flush! explore the nature of public washrooms at the border of the public and the private. As such public washrooms can be bewildering places. The bewilderment is reflected in the exhibition by photographs, video art and installations by seven artists.

Päivi Koskinen’s photographs take the viewers to the private places of showers at homes. Heidi Lunabba’s Drawing in Snow video shows a ballet dancer forming patterns in snow by urinating. The other Flush! artists are Petri Saarikko, Petri Ala-Maunus, Sasha Huber, Juhana Moisanderand Minna Suoniemi.

Flush! is part of the programmes of World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 and Helsinki Photography biennial.
