  Suojelija (guardian) 2019 / käsin rakennettu musta savi ja lasite   Näyttelyn nimi viittaa syvyyteen, varjoihin ja pimeyden merkitykseen. Pimeys on elintärkeä luonnonvara, jota on syytä suojella*. Kysymyksiä herättävä, maailmankaikkeutta hallitseva pimeä aine on suurimmilta osin näkymätöntä ja sen koostumusta ei vielä tiedetä**. Mitä on pimeys meissä? Universumin kokoisista kysymyksistä liikutaan yksilön kokoisiin kokemuksiin. Dark Matters yhteisnäyttely koostuu pääosin keraamisista veistoksista ja äänestä.

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   Ajattelemme Suomea metsien maana, mutta luonnontilaisen kaltaisia metsiä on maassamme jäljellä enää n. 5 prosenttia. Täysin luonnonvaraista, ihmisen koskematonta kolkkaa tuskin löytyy koko maapallolta. Ihminen vaikuttaa jatkuvasti luontoon, usein […]
