Viiskulma 23.7.-3.8.2008

I am interested in the ”temporary architecture” seen in cities, often on building sites, where available materials have been used to create solutions for immediate, yet momentary needs.

The properties of the materials I have used have had an effect on the sculptures on display. In addition to materials gathered from the streets and trash pallets, I have used various natural materials, including living plants. Their ability to adjust to varied conditions and to make use of even the smallest living spaces is something I have wanted to imitate in my sculptures.

The exhibition has been kindly supported by the Paulo Foundation.
