Changes / Constancies | Viktoria Ikonen
24th November 2017 @ 8:00 pm
Congratulations to our very talented Viktoria Ikonen on her personal show! We are so proud!
During her stay at the RaumArs AiR in Rauma, Viktoria Ikonen worked on a site-specific project “Changes / Constancies” based on her everyday observations and documentations of the seasonal changes in nature.
She conducted a research about the sea in Rauma, where the artist was living nearby, questioning how this natural matter could be defined by the exact place. Ikonen constructed the project by using various materials such as paintings, Polaroids, notes and also found objects from Rauma, all of which were created and collected during the residency time. These materials were interwoven with various scientific facts taken from the pages of Wikipedia about the Gulf of Bothnia, and also with what she learnt from the maritime cultural heritage and history of Rauma.
The final presentation at P-galleria aims to provide a ‘mixed media landscape’ in which the artist portrayed the traces of human activities left in the landscape and the images of the present scenery in order to reveal the local and seasonal peculiarities of the sea, while exploring the possibilities of various mediums.
