Below, see some images from the FUN∙LAND RE∙VISITED exhibited upstairs in Turun Sarjakuvakauppa (for more info, see previous post). The exhibition features scenes from Man with the Dog, selected elements from the FUN∙LAND exhibition as well as some new pieces that deepen the story of the FUN∙LAND amusement park featured in the book. Exhibition open until June 30th.
“FUN∙LAND RE∙VISITED digs deeper in the fun fair world of last November’s FUN∙LAND installation in Galleria Ruutu. The lurking sinister finds even more bone-chilling forms in a place that should represent uninhibited joy and where one’s purest needs should be fulfilled. What lies in the black of the shadows?
Tuomas Tiainen’s FUN•LAND installation is open 24/7 during 1.–28. of November at Helsinki Comics Center‘s Galleria Ruutu (Hämeentie 150, Helsinki, Finland). Note: UV light, different layers to create a 3D effect, white and black paint.
“The FUN·LAND installation is a view to the black world of Tuomas Tiainen’s debut comic book Man with the Dog. The work represents an amusement park hidden inside its walls and located on the outskirts of the city.”

Tuomas Tiainen: Man with the Dog
(Dead Genesis 2012)
134 pages // black-and-white // in English
A man wakes up to a new morning perspiring and shouting. Ahead is yet another suffocating day at the factory, and while the forecast promises beautiful weather, there’s something sinister to be seen in the corner of the eye. Man with the Dog is an almost silent story about a man whose loneliness is shattered by an unexpected companion beyond mind and matter. But is this friendship better than being alone? Tuomas Tiainen’s debut comic book is a bleak, graphic work, where there is no grey whatsoever between black and white.
