Matthew Cowan: Wildness Makes This World
Seinäjoki Art Hall, Seinäjoki
Wildness Makes This World is a project between artist Matthew Cowan, Kunsthalle Seinäjoki and the Seinäjoki-based orchestra Laitakaupungin orkesteri, where they seek for significant, important places. Places, where something wild has been experienced. Places can be boundaries between the wild nature and the environment built by man. The participatory project works with local people. Laitakaupungin orkesteri creates soundscapes for the exhibition together with the artist.
Matthew Cowan is a New Zealand artist, based in Berlin and Helsinki, working in the realm of traditional European customs. His works are photographs, videos, installations and performances, which play with the inherent strangeness of the continued popularity of long established folk customs in a contemporary world.
