Minni Havas: Underflow

11.5.-17.6.2023, Galleria Kuvitus

The exhibition Underflow by Minni Havas (b. 1983) is a spatial composition that follows the logic of poetry, ignoring consistency. Havas explores the underflow within us: hidden emotions and subconscious messages. Illustrated textiles, coloured pencil drawings and oil paintings engage in dialogue in this fascinating display.
