Opening on thursday 27.7. 18-21
Teeth of the Earth
honey scents, rags
a ruined picnic and views
And rocks are liquid like fruits and embodiments, more slowly
I look at our hands above the ground
our ghostly hands
A year ago, I built a human figure out of clay to hang out at a picnic for the entire summer. In the fall, I retrieved the sculpture that had melted into its sheets and tore it into pieces at the ruined picnic. Now I'm building a new picnic spot, a temporary space for memories and accumulations, a gesture of awakening, and a collage of things that attract one towards small changes of position and movements. My work is a combination of clay, ceramics, sheets, video, and found objects.
Henna Herranen is a Helsinki-based visual artist, and graduated with a Master of Arts degree from the Aalto University. Accumulations and the smallest movements is her first solo exhibition, which continues the narrative from her previous artwork To land once on a picnic, which was exhibited at the Öres22 summer exhibition in the Kimitö archipelago.
