Vantaa | 2019
Mainostauko (‘Ad Break’) is an outdoor exhibition subverting the constant flow of advertisement in public spaces. 28 unique art posters by 31 different Finnish and international artists were displayed around Vantaa for the first two weeks of April 2019 in outdoor advertisement spaces.
The project critically views the dominance of commercial adverts in public space enforced upon the public without their consent or choice and instead, uses the existing infrastructure to offer an visual alternative.
