AURA KAJANIEMI: AFTER THE DARK

our eyes meet
you are my friend
my reflection

unintentional altar cloth
before me
pierced by light

nights are getting brighter 
and we meet more often

you look towards me and then away again

to somewhere I can’t see

The exhibition deals with the space in between and inside people, how dissolving memories burst into faded out flashes of never-ending repeating moments of similarity.

Aura Kajaniemi (born 1986) is a Helsinki-based artisti who embroiders pictures out of beads. Small glass bead particles turn into pictures that let light pass through. The photo-like portraits are moving with the perspective of the spectator.

IIDA PII: I LEAVE THE LIGHT ON

It’s dark behind the eyes I leave the light on
Nightmare about sleeping alone
The main materials of my works are thoughts and feelings. Sometimes, to assemble them, I also need to purchase and make different utensils.
I follow a pale blue thread.

From the edges of mind maps, you can find crumbs that attract each other, condensing what is essential between them.

Everything connects with 
-dashes
-Blu-Tack
-unspoken agreements -extended Lundia shelves

Iida Pii (born 1989) is an artist who moves towards ideas that spark interest and curiosity from a perspective where ordinary things reveal themselves in new light. Pii works with juxatoposition where she brings different subjects and materials loosely together creating spaces where the spectator struggles to find a simple solution or a means to an end.

Welcome to the opening Thurday 4th of May from 6 PM to 9 PM.
