Pori Biennale 2022 - Visitors is a site-specific, process-based event taking place in Eastern Helsinki in 14–24 July. The exhibition, situated mainly in public places, explores the unique environments of Meri-Rastila and Kallahti area from architecture to nature.

The theme, Visitors, refers to us - artists, curators, artworks and public - as visitors in the area, but also to different visitors from human to nonhuman leaving traces and passing messages. The different historical layers, the protected nature in Kallahdenniemi as well as the non-protected neighborhood and housing blocks in Meri-Rastila, demonstrate ideologies and values that shape the fragile existence of the area and its residents, and function as a framework and a scenery for the artworks. Visitors explores alternative perspectives on how social and power structures manifest themselves in our surroundings and landscapes, and how art can be exhibited in different settings in sustainable ways.

Visitors are encouraged to be curious and inspect the environment, but it is equally important to respect the restrictions in the nature reservoir and the residents living in the areas. Pori Biennale 2022 is free.

Artists and participants: Michaela Casková, Venla Helenius, Kaija Hinkula, Flis Holland, Kristina Sedlerova Villanen, Erika Weiste, Mirja Inkinen, Anni-Anett Liik, Inka Lönnqvist, nylon-collective, Tiia Roivanen, Teemu Ruissalo, FEMMA Planning, Ostaritutkimuksia, You Tell Me Collective
