NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Acoustic elements in the Shadow Zone exhibition make it an unforgettable experience with sounds ranging from thunderstorm to birdsong, from the song of cricets to the clicking of clocks, weaving everything into a single unified soundscape.

“The works resonate with some shadowy darkness, with some twisted or unexpected space,” artist Liisa Lounila says.

In her art, Lounila examines contemporary life through the experience and recording of time. The new exhibition features videos, sound installations, assemblages, neon work and a VR piece. Characterised by a calculated aloofness and technical precision, the works nevertheless contain a sense of nostalgia and timelessness.

They are inspired by the artist’s travels and nature experiences and more broadly by popular culture and visual art.
