Exhibition in gallery Sculptor in Helsinki until 3th September 2017!
Address: Eteläranta 12, open Tue-Fri 11-5 pm, Sat-Sun 12-4 pm.
Association of Finnish Sculptors invited me to a stipend show with sculptor Anneli Sipiläinen. I made two new installations. Here are some pictures from last spring and this summer.
I construct two new installations to the space, to form a kind of sceneries. The starting point was the time I spent in England, in the shore of the English Channel. There the nature`s own time was present: in the waters of the ancient sea, rising and withdrawing according the tide, there lived peculiar sea creatures and among the stones the fossils formed a cronicle. In the same time, erosion is diging soil under the plants in the cliffs. When I sat there, a whole tree fell down. I draw the ever moving soil.
The other art piece depicts a pier, a man-made structure where the sea animals has grown on the surfice. The sea has wihtdrawn and the creatures has been left bare. I have moulded them from clay and clazed. The other work `The avalance´ fills the rear room: It consists of two parts: through the windows piled on top of each other one sees the layers of soil pressed against each other. In the other part the `falling´ form has a collage of drawings on the surfice. I have made the collage from ten crayon drawings from wich I have made copies.
Here are some pictures from the working process.
IN THE NIGHT OF THE ARTS, THU 24TH OF AUGUST THE GALLERY IS OPEN UNTIL 8 O`CLOCK AND I AM PRESENT , WELLCOME!
