The artwork is exhibited in the Kuva/Tila gallery on the 1st floor of the Mylly building.


I think about questions related to emptiness as well as the experience of silence and coming to a stop. I look for a quiet place that is undisturbed by the surrounding noises. I start at the level of the fibre. I end up investigating the subtle things that take place on the surface of the material, which often go unnoticed – small gestures, textures, and the vibration of colours.
