INSIDE - OUTSIDE

ICEWALL at gallery Platform in Vaasa (FIN)

Culturescene Kvarken was a co-operation project between artists from Finland and Sweden. The theme for the project was identity and the works were exhibited at the gallery Platform in Vaasa (FIN).

 

Inside-Outside was one of participating projects. Inside-Outside consisted of three artists, two from Finland and one from Sweden. The work was exhibited inside and outside the gallery.


In my work Icewall, I worked with immigrants living in Vaasa. I collected people's thoughts  about their new hometown Vaasa. The inquiry was anonymous and they could write in any language they wanted. I projected about 80 texts during evenings and nights through the gallerywindow on a wall of ice outside the gallery.
