Impi’s Trap

29.3.-21.4.2019

Sanni Mäkipää and Emma Nurminen
Impi’s Trap
29 March – 21 April 2019

On Good Friday 19th of March and on Easter Sunday 21st of April the gallery is open 12-5.pm. On Easter Monday the gallery is closed as usual.

The Impi’s Trap -installation is a visual lure attracting viewers through its materiality. It is the awakening of a swamp in the spring. Impi is a hermit rising from the swamp, condemned as a witch of both seduction and denial, whose living environment the installation depicts. The installation is a quagmire, where various temptations grow and possible intruders are captured.

The techniques that are traditionally seen as feminine handicrafts, rug making and sewing, are given space to expand within the framework of the installation. The installation includes, for example, yarn, mesh and fabric. All textiles and yarns used are recycled materials. The different pieces, created both in collaboration and individually, are merged together to form the installation.

The exhibition has been supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Arts Council of Pirkanmaa.
