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. Kuljun keraamiikasta käsin rakentamat veistokset toimivat esittäjinä Metson säveltämälle ja esittämälle […]

The work, which was woven on a handloom in the Arabia Art Departmen Society’s visiting artist studio at the Iittala & Arabia Design Centre, investigates different ways to combine ceramics and woven fabric, in this case the sound and brittleness of ceramic materials. concept and art piece: Veera Kulju video and edit: Ananya Tanttu performance and choreography: Satu Halttunen clothing pattern: Anu Salonen graphic design: Ilkka Kärkkäinen “Sounds […]

Somewhere in the middle of the planned working process a forest started to appear. There it was, a new path. I shouldn’t feel surprised, after all I said Im going to the wintery forest to hang with Aslan. Feeling like this might be the looking glass into that kingdom.
