Chair and Trap
Helsinki Art Museum Gallery
wood, cotton, acrylics, plaster, textiles, plastic, polyester rope
An eternal amorphous space where you must think about drawing and painting in the broadest sense, and where you can sit down.
A horrifying, hopeful and unknown landscape opened in front of me from the window. The lobby’s promise of a future, the idea of a chair.
The kind of uncertainty I felt could not be found in the structures where I lived. A feeling may remain unchanged for weeks in a refrigerator.
Chair and Trap is an installation consisting of paintings and sculptural objects.
