They have become divisive, contentious. You are as likely to associate them with pollution and lung disease as with adventure and the wide-open road.

Car Show is a sort of vehicle graveyard.

By turning cars into light installations, Roininen in conjuring forth mechanical ghosts. These cars have been abandoned; they are lost objects from another era.

Anne Roininen creates conceptual, spatial artworks using a variety of techniques ranging from sculpture to dialogue. Her most recent output explores the urban realm, garden cities and the nature of objects. Highly socially charged, these artworks are fascinated with everyday phenomena, understanding and conceptualising them.

The cars that make up the work are exhibited on Sitratori and at the Kanneltalo lobby. The artwork can be experienced in lights on evenings between 5 and 10 p.m.
