Tensta Konsthall Launches a New Virtual Gallery and a New Website
Stockholm.-We are happy to announce the launch of our new website designed by Ohlsonsmith and Nodeone. The site is intended to be easy to navigate, continuously updated, works with an open source programming solution and even includes regular blog. As part of the site we have included The Virtual Gallery a new web gallery and the first thing you see when you visit the site.

The Virtual Gallery curated by Pia Isaksson is intended as a window for artists and the art centre with new exhibitions each month. Every artist will show around 15 images each, you will be able to either flip between the images or just follow the flow on the page.

Descriptions of the artist works and background information on each months artist is included in our blog and updated with each new exhibition

We particularly highlight photography and our curator Pia Isaksson has invited a range of approaches and works from such artists as Nadja Bournonville, Tiina Itkonen, Alen Aligrudic, and Peo Olsson.

The first artist we present is Ilkka Halso who was born in Orimattila Finland in 1965 and where he lives and works today, Halso is part of the photographic group the Helsinki School. The works we are showing are in two parts a series called "Restoration of Nature" from 2000 and a new work titled "Museum of Nature from 2009". The aesthetic blast of Halso's work highlights and masks a dark and overwhelming pessimistic view of humankind's relation to nature. In the first series the artist has constructed elaborate scaffolding, as if a clandestine group is moving through the wilderness of Finland in an attempt to help restore the balance of nature by repairing the broken or cleansing the polluted. As he puts it: "AS EVERYBODY KNOWS, THE NATURE HAS GONE INTO BAD SHAPE. IT MUST BE RENOVATED!" In the second series of works "Museum of Nature" Halso has adjusted the scale to the level of the monumental. A mountain is under cover, a waterfall is provided with movie seating, a forest sits snugly in a green house. Halso's work reminds us of the fragility of the world around us, our capacity to manipulate what we see and want to see, and the aesthetics of an impending global catastrophe.
