In late autumn 2009 (so far the weekend of Oct. 30 till Nov. 1, 2009 is earmarked) LINDA will move from St. Pauli to Helsinki, in the context of WSW #3.
Together with gallery Napa, Helsinki, we will build an outstation of LINDA gallery, creating a temporary space for one weekend, inviting everybody to drop in. We will represent LINDA as well as the works of other Hamburg non-commercial “off-galleries”
A “time pavilion” will be created, consisting of 2 rooms.
The first room represents LINDA and gives information of the “off-scene” of Hamburg, showing a Hamburg suitcase.
The second room will be the space for artistic experiments, available for artists and visitors alike. This room will be used at times for presentations of e.g. films, photographic documentations, and sound.
6 members of LINDA art and culture club will travel to Helsinki in order to organize “LINDA Mobil”. Moreover, it is planned to present the experience of Helsinki the weekend thereafter in the showrooms of LINDA in Hamburg. Our link to the Finnish art scene is NAPA, which will draw attention to our project on their premises.
