“Kulju’s mirror-themed reliefs, the fairytale wall-hung artworks could have come straight from the dressing room of Snow White’s stepmother. In reality, they don’t reflect, but rather absorb the light.”  -Veikko Halmetoja Dusk, 2019 / hand-built black clay and glaze / ~70 X 55 X 15 cm Opening, 2019 / hand-built porcelain, bone china and glaze / ~60 x 49 x 15cm Ajattelemme Suomea metsien maana, mutta luonnontilaisen kaltaisia metsiä on maassamme jäljellä enää n. 5 prosenttia.

BLEACH, 2019 Hand-built paper porcelain, glaze /  Käsinrakennettu paperiposliini, lasite photo Chikako Harada Ihmisen kädenjälki näkyy myös pinnanalaisissa metsissä. Korallit ympäri maailman menettävät väriään nopeammin kuin koskaan aikaisemmin. Suurin tekijä on aiheuttamamme ilmastonmuutos ja sen vaikutuksesta lämpenevät vedet. Korallien laaja haalistuminen huomattiin ensimmäisen kerran jo vuonna 1979. Ilmastonmuutoksen kiihtymisen myötä koralleille ei jää tarpeeksi aikaa palautua.

  My next private exhibition will open on the 12th of January at Konsthantverkarna Gallery in Stockholm, Sweden. WELCOME konsthantverkarna.se Sounds of Silence Veera Kulju är mest känd för sina keramiska popkorn-skulpturer. Det är skulpturer bestående av många element med små variationer.

I Kuljus skulpturer blandas popkorn i porslinleran. De […]

Holy Wood, my first solo exhibition at ARTag Gallery is made of fragile forest and popcorn transformed into bone china.  Exhibition is open 4.–27.5.2018 and you are warmly welcome! “Veera Kulju (b. 1975), an artist graduated from the Aalto University, uses ceramics and textiles in her artwork. In her sculptures, small details build a vast bundle of meanings, and the larger forms maintain a dialogue with everyday objects. The beauty of the mostly black and white pieces […]
