Heli Ryhänen’s work of art chosen to the entrance hall of the new campus in Pori

Sculptor Heli Ryhänen's work of art Pistokas (Cutting) will decorate the entrance hall of the SAMK’s new campus in Pori. The work was selected from three award-winning works of art as a result of an art competition. SAMK made the decision based on the proposal of a jury and the comments of the students and the architect.

Ryhänen's Pistokas meets all the set requirements for a public work of art: it elevates the space and it is aimed at the users. In addition, it is an artistically high-class, interesting and multidimensional work. Familiar indoor plants take a surprising form hanging in the air in the installation. The work involves participatory background work where the artist finds out which indoor plants are favoured by the students. The work is a living and renewable whole, as it is possible to connect a virtually augmented reality to it.

SAMK Student Union thinks that Pistokas has strong reference to growth and it reminds us of the importance of ecology.

“The work gives comfort because of its big forms and light approach to indoor plants. Floating cuttings add materiality to open air, thus reducing the feel of emptiness in a large space. In addition, they create a cosy atmosphere in the facilities”, SAMK Student Union states.

The prizes of the art competition were disclosed in early December 2016. The first prize was given to Heli Ryhänen and Pistokas, the second prize to Jarno Vesala and the work Palaan pian (I'll be back soon) and the third prize to Jani Rättyä and his work Emo (Mother).

The new campus will be located next to the Station Square and it will be completed in spring 2017. The studies will begin on the new campus in autumn 2017. The work of art will be finalized during the spring and summer. Approximately 3500 students and 250 staff members will be working on the campus, collecting all the functions of SAMK in the same premises.

SAMK Art Project has been subsidized by Arts Promotion Centre Finland, SAMK and Citycon Plc.

Permission has been given by the artists to use the pictures of works of art.
