    Ilse van den Berk - exhibition Suomen Maisema - Row of Trees

    In earlier artist-in-residencies Ilse van den Berk has walked for hours in the landscape around the art center and has made thousands of pictures. The photos are part of her paintings she made during her stay and also afterwards in her atelier in the Netherlands.

    The exhibition is part of the art education project:
    THIS IS OUR NATURE

    The project is part an international exchange program that will be developed by Saksala ArtRadius, AREFS taide ja kulttuuri ry, the AllaprimA Foundation and other organizations in different countries of Europe.

    The exhibition she has built up during her stay this time shows a selection of these photos and they cover the walls completely. During her stay she has  started cooperation with the school and social groups in the village to involve people in this project. Finally every one will be invited to make photos, poems, texts or something else and create a new wall with the view on Haukivuori.

    Ilse van den Berk - exhibition Suomen Maisema - photo walls

    Exhibition with photos of the environment of Haukivuori by the artist Ilse van den Berk. This exhibition is also the beginning of the project THIS IS OUR NATURE in which the society of Haukivuori will participate.

    Photos and paintings based on the different stays in Haukivuori the artist has had in the past years.
    The book "Suomen Maisema  - Finnish Landscape" is the result of intensive observation of the rural landscape of Haukivuori.
    It shows how the artist visualizes the impressions of the countless times she has walked through the forests, fields and along the brooks and lakes.
    And as Lucien den Arend wrote in the same book: "Away from the highways, and in our case far from the dirt road, one hears the wind in the trees, the birds and insects."

    This is part of the quality of the landscape and its nature and the treasure of people born and living in this region.
