Art Below has started at Hyde Park Corner station

’Totally Connected’ by artist Ulla Karttunen, ART BELOW Summer Show, Herrick Gallery & Hyde Park Corner Tube Station, London 2018

The Art Below Summer Show is on display at Hyde Park Corner tube station from 18th June 2018 for two weeks. On 26th June the exhibition opens also at Herrick Gallery. The theme is the ‘Digital Age’, given by the curator Ben Moore: the artists have been asked to ’to voice and document their current relationship and place in the digital age and to channel their feelings and emotions about this rapidly changing time that we are living through’.

The artist Ulla Karttunen’s work is an ironic interpretation of the idea of man, the idea of human being, in the digital age. The illusion of being connected and the rise of narcissism characterize the digital age.

What is the difference between a sheep and a human being? A sheep knows that it’s cool without obsessional repetition of its face in asocial media.

Miracles in New York

Armory Week, New York 2018: Artbox.project New York 1.0 at Stricoff Gallery

The Miracle of the Weeping Madonna, 2018, by Ulla Karttunen

When media tells about weeping madonnas, it is normally question of statues that are claimed to be shedding tears of blood by supernatural means. Most cases are proven as hoaxes. Some madonnas, believed to be apparitions of the Virgin Mary, attract pilgrims.

The madonna in this digital mixed-media artwork does not cry because of supernatural reasons. She sheds tears of blood (and tears of other unrecognised materials) because of all-too-real reasons: for all sexual violence, for all inequality, on the globe.

Where’s the miracle? There are hopes that #MeToo and #TimesUp movements mean a historical change. First we must cry out, and then, little by little, times are changing. This miracle is related to reality, and its other name is change and justice.

The Miracle of the Weeping was presented at Artbox.Project New York 1.0, The Stricoff Gallery, 564 W. 25th Street, New York, NY , 5th – 16th March 2018

Pieni katsaus Donna Criminalen vaiheisiin vuonna 2017:

ARTROOMS 2017 info in State magazine /London, with image of Ulla Karttunen: Donna Criminalebackcover Partnership / ARTROOMS 2017, with image of Ulla Karttunen: Donna Criminalearticle ARTROOMS 2017, with image of Ulla Karttunen: Donna CriminaleLontoon ARTROOMS 2017-tapahtuman yhteydessä Ulla Karttusen Donna Criminale -teos oli kovasti esillä eri julkaisuissa (esimerkiksi lehdet ylhäältä/vasemmalta: Repubblica 21.1.2017, State F22 issue 3/2017, Partnership Italy-UK, Wonderstreet).

Edellisenä vuonna alkaneelle Donna Criminalen kilpailumenestykselle ja kansainväliselle kysynnälle tuli jatkoa myös vuonna 2017 teoksen noustessa finalistiksi Malamegi Lab.8 -taidekilpailussa. Teoshan voitti 2016 pääpalkinnon nyky-yhteiskunnan tabuja koskevassa taidekilpailussa ja näyttelyssä Firenzessä, ja matkasi myös portugalilaiseen kirkkoon ja Algerian kansallismuseoon.

Tämänsyksyisessä majapaikassaan Loft-galleriassa Rooman keskustassa Donna Criminale nautti yleisön suosiosta, jopa niin että galleria halusi pidentää sen esilläoloaikaa vielä kuukauden Lab.8 -näyttelystä eteenpäin.

Vuoden 2018 alussa Donna Criminale on nousemassa kansikuvatytöksi ulkomaisen laatukustantajan taiteensosiologiseen teokseen, jopa sen molempiin osiin. Kirjaan on tulossa myös Donnan Criminalen varhaisvaiheita, eli Neitsythuorakirkkoa, käsittelevä amerikkalaisen taiteensosiologin artikkeli.

A Red-Dressed Goddess

Uma, The Lady of the Mountains, 2017, digital collage by Ulla Karttunen, on show at Miami exhibition (Artium Miami Art Gallery)

“Uma, The Lady of the Mountains” is a portrait of the ancient red-dressed mountain-goddess. Uma means light or the peace of night. She is considered as the goddess of spiritual knowledge.

Uma is known also as Parvati, as well as other names; Parvata is the Sanskrit word for mountain. Lalita Sahasranama, a sacred Hindu text, gives 1000 names for Parvati, Lalita, Uma.

Parvati or Uma is seen as an active figure; referring to love, desire and ecstacy, but also to freedom, action and justice. C.G. Jung, in his Mysterioum Coniunctionis, linked Parvati and the black Goddesses.
