During the exhibition period the working group visual artist Maijariitta Karhulahti and light artist Anne Salmi will create a drawing installation covering the entire gallery space. The installation is made with various textile materials and light and will grow and develop in interaction between two artists and expressions from different fields. At the heart of the work is non-verbal communication where color, light, lines and surfaces guide the dialogue and outcome.

For the audience the installation offers daily changing experience of three-dimensional drawing and light painting.

At the opening of the exhibition on 14.11. the artists present a demo of their collaborative and multidisciplinary working method.

Karhulahti and Salmi invite the audience to meet, discuss and share thoughts and experiences on multidisciplinary work and the possibilities of textile art and light art. The aim of the artists'process is to find new ways of making art and visually impressive entities through simple, sustainable means. Conversations are held in English.

Artists are present and working at the Galerie Pleiku during the opening hours Tue-Sat 3 pm - 7 pm

Spacifying - Part: Retrospective

A performance with dance artist Hanna Kahrola includes video dance, live visual art and live contemporary dance. The performance comments and reflects on home region identity and the meanings of the place of being.

The interaction between the ways of making art and different places creates overlapping abstract worlds, which are manifested in the dancer's movement on video and in the performance space, and in the visual artist's movement and created traces.
