Natalia Kozieł-Kalliomäki

Kazik Kazik is a cake slice of a biography where stitches and folded marks freeze on a well-cut material. It is a close look on life’s pressed edges and ragged ends – a search of rhythm, colours, structures and scents. The sound of a sewing machine and a thread being pulled through a thick fabric is buzzing in the head. Much of his hard work has been imprinted in these tailoring tools. Suddenly, a spool of tightly twisted memories rolls out in the mind. The past is a patchwork of skilfully printed large surfaces, an impossible story to tailor according to anyone’s measurements.

Natalia Kozieł-Kalliomäki (FI/PL) is a visual artists based in Finland, with a practice originating in the worlds of painting and printmaking. Often changing in artistic scale, Natalia works with large canvases, stamp-size graphics, space projections and live-cinema performances. Located at the intersection of print art, theatre and film, her projects use vintage projection technology as optical brushes and beams of light as their paint.

“My works are often multi-layered forms of abstraction and the concrete depiction.
I am fascinated by the power of light that converts my printmaking fixation of visual experience into a pure experience of printed matter. I’m always seeking a joyful engagement with colour, materiality, and finely orchestrated staging”.

Finnish Art Society, thank you for supporting this project.
