"Attempting Ideal" is an exhibition hosted by Salon Dahlmann presenting the work of fifteen young Finnish artists from the Lipponen Collection. Borrowing its name from a video by Tiina Palmu, it features a selection of paintings, videos, photographs and graphic art. The show is designed around video works by three women artists. The bouncing balls in Palmu’s video carry on the legacy of 1970s conceptualism, while Iiu Susiraja’s Hamburger tells the story of a couple in a narrative laced with wicked black humour. Jenni Toikka’s "Atonemen"t is a minimalistic study of psychological tension filmed at the Paimio Sanatorium, an early masterpiece by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The videos are accompanied by a selection of paintings and works on paper by emerging talent in Finnish contemporary art, including Ville Andersson, Alma Heikkilä, Hannaleena Heiska, Olli Piippo and Tiina Pyykkinen.
