Group exhibitions "My Home Somewhere ", Vantaa Art Museum ARTSI, Vantaa, Finland
My home somewhere on 12.1. - 1 September 2024
The home is one of the most central places for building a person's identity. Home as a concept often refers to security, warmth and peace, but home can also be associated with feelings of insecurity and not belonging, for example. The experience of home and its meanings are always formed individually – home means different things to everyone.

Arts' exhibition "My home somewhere" examines the meaning of home from different perspectives. The themes of the works in the exhibition include emigration and refugeehood, family relationships, and home space and objects. The exhibition makes you think about what is meant by home and what factors make up a home. Is home always a concrete place, or could it also be a state of mind?

The exhibition is mainly collected from the art collection of the city of Vantaa. In addition to the works in the collection, the theme of the exhibition is complemented by a few invited artists. The exhibition also features the artist selected as part of the "Finnish stories – Historical culture, art and changing citizenship" project, Ukrainian multimedia artist Spartak Khachanov. Read more about the project.

In Vantaa, public art also creates a sense of home and belonging. As part of the exhibition, works of public art chosen by the people of Vantaa themselves, which have brought memories and meanings to the lives of the townspeople, will be presented.

The exhibition is part of the 50th anniversary program of the city of Vantaa. The theme of the city's jubilee year is "At Home in Vantaa".
