Northern myriad

Art and Museum Centre Sinkka, Kerava

  • 1.10.2022–8.1.2023

KIRSI KAULANEN
Sara Leino | Teho Majamki | Lauri Porra

 

Northern myriad surrounds the viewer like the landscape from the fells or the silent sound of space. The exhibition focuses on the laser-cut steel sculptures by Kirsi Kaulanen (b. 1969), a leading contemporary Finnish artist. The sculptures borrow their form from the contours of endangered plants and the ornamentation of the roots hidden under the forest floor.

Spreading on the walls, ceiling and floor, the sculptures are like living organisms or unknown universes. Full of details, they fill the space as a galaxy landed on the surface of Earth. The light rays reflecting off the steel and shadows floating on the walls are created by lighting designer Sara Leino. The spatial soundscapes are created by musicians Teho Majamki and Lauri Porra.

Everything in Kaulanens art can be traced back to nature. For her, connection with and understanding of nature are a source of inexhaustible creativity and a prerequisite of existence: I feel at home in myself when I am in the forest. The forests geometry, ornamentation and natural forms are imprinted in my body memory and flow through my hands into concrete forms.” The fear of the loss of biodiversity is there, but so is also an experience of beauty, enchantment and shared destiny.
