Sunday 28.7 at 4pm at Arkadia: Opening of Aporia, an installation by Ines Kivimaki

You are very welcome to visit us / Arkadia International Bookshop and “like” us if indeed you do!

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to the opening of Aporia, an installation by Ines Kivimaki, on Sunday 28.7 at 4pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

Ines’s new body of work, Aporia, is largely inspired by James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake, and seeks to understand the role literature has come to play within our contemporary society. Contemplating the layers of accessibility in art and literature, the project presented at Arkadia Bookshop will reference a lineage of turn of the 20th century masters and their works—a tradition that she believes may be growing ever distant in the minds of her generation.

You are all most welcome.

Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome.

Currently studying in Los Angeles at Art Center College of Design, Ines Kivimaki works primarily in film, video and installation. Focusing on the mechanics of narratives—particularly subjective narratives—their metaphoric potential and their engagement with reality, her art addresses processes of thought and their relationship to concepts of the present in ‘real’ and virtual time and place. Employing image, sound and sculpture through pre-existing structures, her work plays upon the internal workings of the mind and its shifting fault-lines. Through site-specific projects, she hopes to stimulate both reflexive experiences and reflection upon such experience, and is interested in prompting
a disorienting awareness of the gaps between perception, cognition and ‘presence’—the fluidity, and ultimate unreliability, of each.
