House Games is a non-profit artist-run triennial. This event takes place in a standard Finnish apartment which maintains its function as a home, while serving as an alternative exhibition platform. The exhibition is composed of recent artwork from a broad range of artistic practices and cultures. The site-specific interventions shown in House Games are chosen for their loose connection to the theme of house and/or home.
The underlying objective of House Games is to incite community interest in the arts by providing a warm and casual space in which artists and the general public can comfortably mingle. House Games is also interested in presenting a light challenge to artists in the invitation to create new work which coherently relates to a theme, bridges the difficulties of a lived-in exhibition space and stays true to the artists’ intentions. House Games promotes an active artistic community in Central Finland, coming together for a better comprehension of art and the vitality of artistic expression.
The House Games triennial was founded by visual artist Anna Ruth and graphic designer/physiotherapy student Juho Jäppinen in their own home apartment in Jyväskylä, Finland, 2005. The exhibition is held every third year.
Anna Ruth and Juho Jäppinen are the founders of Äkkigalleria 2009, Laatikkomo 2013 and the ti-la2016 project.
