Oikea Länsimetro is a collective work consisting of six full size plywood pieces covering the total area of approximately 12 square meters in a specific order.
There has been around 20 individuals participating in the making of the work over the past six plus years.
The artwork has been made solely with acrylic markers. It started as an individual one plywood guestbook, which quickly took its shape portraying the orange Helsinki subway.
Soon after the first plywood was filled with different tags and
sketches, the main protagonists of the artwork (Olois, Henks, Judo28
& Pietr) carried the underground public transport from an plywood to
another and noticed how the procedure resembled the ongoing
constructions of Helsinki city's subway extension to the west
At WindowFactory studio, in the small windowless bomb shelter, during countless sessions everyone
traveled through were free to join the ride and hop on and off on the
imaginative stations that the artists had created.
Now for the first time ever, the piece will surface in Yö Galleria as a whole.
