Metsäpolulla – visual art and poems in voice-space art exhibition

Metsäpolulla –voice and space exhibition made by artists from Rauma, along with the Art museum of Rauma. The exhibition joins together lyrics, voices, space and visual art, and gives the viewer, and the listener, a multi sensed experience, which has come to life by a project crossing different art forms.

The art works are based on the interpretation of Niina Rintala’s prose and poems, as interpreted by Kirsi Backman. The theme of the texts is a forest. The exhibition includes a voice installation, constructed by poems by Niina Rantala and voice world by Heikki Vastiala.

The exhibition is showcased at the outdoor building of the Art museum of Rauma, and is open for audience from 6.7 to 10.9. The exhibition has no entrance fee. You can see the exhibition every time the art museum is open, and you can also see and hear the exhibition through a plastic door until late at night, since the recorded tape is rolling at a lighted space from morning to 10 o’clock in the evening.
