Arteles Creative Centre, Finland
Haukijärvi is a site specific solo exhibition held at the Arteles Creative Centre in rural Finland. Photography, found objects, assemblages and experimental printmaking thread together a dialogue between ourselves and place. The setting for Haukijärvi is a small traditional Finnish sauna, a coming-together-place of birch timber, water, and the interplay of human bodies and relationships. We used this intimate setting to display work we created in collaboration with birch trees and ice in the Finnish mid-Winter. An experience for a single viewer at a time, Haukijärvi acknowledges our deeper connection with the natural world beyond its exploitation as a resource.
