Rikkoutuva (Breakable), solo exhibition, Promenadigalleria, Finland, March 2021.
My solo exhibition, Rikkoutuva (Breakable) is taking place at the Promenadigalleria, Hyvinkää, Finland, 13.3.-31.3.2021. The show is composed of installations that are formed of numerous small parts. Instead of concentrating on small individual pieces I rather tell stories in arrangements of multiples. The topic of this exhibition is belonging, pining and fear of losing. In my work I aim to suggest order into chaos, harmony and quiet. I hope to reach this by offering wonderment and awe, by arranging an elevating experience away from the mundane.
The installations are composed of thousands of eggshells. These eggs are dyed using colors which I make from plants, berries, vegetables and other natures offerings. Sustainability issues in art production is important to me and my aim is to create art that in the end can be taken apart and returned back to nature.
Artist of the Month
For the month of September 2021 I will be presenting my work at the Aarni Galleria, Espoo, Finland. I`m playing with an idea of a wall of hanging eggs, but time will show how things develop.
Board of Directors
I am delighted to act as a board member in two cultural institutions that are close to my heart, Juvenalia Music School Espoo, Finland and The Visual Artists of Espoo, Finland. Both theses positions offer so much enrichment to my personal and professional life. I`m privileged to have the opportunity to experience such important cultural work from "behind the scenes" and work with such fantastic people.
Three houses in the Slovakian mountains
We have three little historical houses on the Slovakian mountains, we are slowly renovating them with our building team. I have a lovely studio facilities here to work on larger scale installations. I also have a fantastic range of mountain plants to discover for the natural colors I use in my work.
I´m also a keen gardener and together with my husband we spend hours during the wintertime dreaming and planning our gardens in Slovakia.
