KITA: Summer Exhibition 2023

KITA – House of Kinetic Art’s summer exhibition “Interventilaatio” is closed now. We thank all the wonderful guests and welcome you to visit our next exhibition in summer 2024!

The exhibition is an independent part of the summer exhibition “Beyond Everything” at the Haihatus Art Centre. KITA OPEN -multiartfest is the closing event of the exhibition on 26-27.8.2023.

The 2023 summer exhibition will focus on the alliance between kinetic art and immersiveness and mixes two inherently interactive and playful artistic mindsets. The exhibition includes performative sculptures and installations, sound artworks and multi-sensory experiential spaces that invite visitors to immerse themselves deeper into the floors of the building. The works are site-specific, inspired by the details of the KITA building and its surroundings, and this summer will even extend to the KITA’s waterfront. The movement-based works work with a variety of mechanics, materials, physical phenomena and analogue electrical devices. The exhibition is created by a cast of artists known from kinetic art and immersive theatre: Erik Alalooga, Artemisia Vulgaris collective, Johanna Latvala, Henna Matanuska, Panu Ollikainen, Essi Pitkänen, Jenni Sormunen, Antti Tolvi and KITA’s artistic director Tuomo Vuoteenoma.

KITA was opened to the public in 2022 when a residential building that had been deserted for decades was renovated into an exhibition space for kinetic art.The surprising dimensions of the gallery and its location on a spectacular waterfront plot at the corner of Nelostie and Joutsansalmi make KITA a special place to visit.
