21.06.2017 to 07.01.2018

The English-born American artist Sarah Morris has risen to international fame in the past few years. She is a painter and filmmaker who sees the two media as one. She is known for her abstract paintings with graphic and colourful ingredients combined with elements of architecture. Morris was intrigued by Tapiola, Espoo. She was also inspired by the architecture of the WeeGee building to create a 30-metre designated wall painting for EMMA. Saastamoinen Foundation has supported production of the wallpainting. Only once before has she created a space-specific painting on a similar scale. Morris’s unique films have been described as psychological portraits for cities. In addition to the designated mural, the exhibition at EMMA will include three films as well as paintings from the Rio series.
