Warm welcome to the artist’s talk on the exhibition
Kristiina Koskentola
16.1.2016 15.00 hrs
Galleria Huuto / Jätkäsaari
Tyynenmerenkatu 6, Helsinki

In her talk Koskentola will discuss her installations Rituals to Mutations (2013), and Blackballing (2013) which comprise her current exhibition Coalworks in Galleria Huuto / Jätkä 1.

In these works, which were produced in China, the artist is engaging in direct dialogue and negotiation with her social environment, interacting and departing from specific socio-cultural conditions, moments in time, materiality and rituals. Delving into the relationships between the human and non-human, the material and the immaterial, and the social and the (global) political Koskentola will reflect on the importance of local knowledge within her practice and on the ways her installations might allow meaning to traverse cultural geographies and other realms.

Talk is conducted in English.
