Galerie Forsblom at CHART De-centred 2020
August 28–30, 2020
Galerie Forsblom presents Emma Helle's latest sculptures in the gallery's showroom during the CHART Art Fair.
Emma Helle is a Finnish sculptor who casts the spotlight on the marginalized creatures, usually relegated to secondary status in art history. She portrays cherubs and feminine sprites in the starring role, as active agents. Relaxed, unpretentious, and generous in her style of portrayal, she lends soft, curvaceous shapes to the feminine bodies with a breadth and richness of expression that evokes canonical works from art history. Throughout the ages, there have always been specific conventions that have dictated the portrayal of the human body, a legacy that Helle addresses through a dual lens of art history and corporeality.
Friday, August 28: 5 pm–7 pm.
Saturday, August 29: noon–4 pm.
Sunday, August 30: noon–4 pm.
CHART 2020 will show 100% women artists in a new de-centred art fair format taking place across the five Nordic capitals. During the CHART weekend, the galleries will show the artists’ works in their own gallery spaces. The new format combines physical exhibitions and events with online activities.
