2023, Aquarelle on cotton

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


There may be some soggy paper left in this place. A puddle, something that spills over the edges. I am flowing, draining to the ground.

I would like to make light conversation about serious topics, but the stems of the spatterdocks entangle around my ankles. Hair is growing out of the soil, and I hide the treasures underneath the nails.

Working with aquarelles reminds me of the watery basis of the body and of the fluids that constantly circulate within us: fluids composed of water molecules that originate from the primeval sea and space.

I practice observing the world with my heel and hipbones. I am reaching thoughts that escape well-formed sentences. The skin is porous - the flora and fauna move within me and in and out of me.

My cells breathe the same air and thinking exists inside of us.
