CHART art fair, the biggest Nordic contemporary art fair, is organized for the 5th time in the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1st to 3rd September 2017. As a part of the fair, Gallery Taik Persons presents works from lecturer Niko Luoma and Aalto student Anna Reivilä.

“I search spaces where nature’s elements combine to create interesting natural tensions. Using ropes as lines is my form of drawing. The lines create interactions, making connections between the elements—a reinterpretation of the landscape”, Anna Reivilä describes her works.

Niko Luoma’s abstract pieces draw focus to the intrinsic qualities of the photographic medium. “Through a calculated, analogue technique of exposing a single negative to lines of light, hundreds or even thousands of times, the finished works reflect the system by which they were created”, he tells.

Gallery Taik Persons was founded in 1995 in Helsinki and is since 2005 located in Berlin. It is the prime gallery for those selected artists who now make up what is known as the Helsinki School.
