I have been invited to exhibit my art in the group exhibition "IN MOTION" that can be viewed in Superellipsen at Sergels Torg between January 17 and February 20, 2022. My contribution "Soilu in Movement" is created out of five of my lake shapes, inspired by family history and the lake Soilu, situated in northern Finland, where my grandmother was born and grew up. In total there is 5.000 strips of paper mounted into wooden frames.
The pieces are all made out of exactly the same copy paper with a slight blue tint in it to make the paper really crispy white. By hanging them in different angles and using both artificial and natural light to illuminate them they look completely different depending in where you stand in the room. The blue tint is enhanced in the paper to create different shades in them even though they only hang 1 to 3 meters a part from each other. The airy feel you get when you look at them straight a head shifts to a high density feel when seen from the side.
