exhibition was a shared effort with visual artist and printmaker Outi Koivisto. It was on view at Gallery Kone in Hämeenlinna 3.3.-27.3.2018. In the show, we studied our conception of the essence of the printed image.

By different means of deconstructive installation, the exhibition places the works into a constant state of becoming. Imprints, gestures, folds, edges, creases, and meanings fluctuate. Like philosophical concepts, so do the spatial pieces meander and dillute into each other, thus constructing a rhizomatic, leafy space.


The exhibition in the local media (Only in Finnish):

Hämeen sanomat 13.3. features Mira Arkko's critique.

Hämeen Sanomat 2.3. published a summary of the press release.

Kaupunkiuutiset 17.3. interviewed the artists.


The exhibition was made possible by the Arts promotion Center Finland.
