When working on our exhibition Saari (The Island), it felt almost as a refuge. Wanting things nonexistent here and now drove the journey towards it.
Now Saari is a metaphor for understanding – a space that is shared but not open for everyone. It consists of both hopes and fears, and is concrete and blurry at the same time. As the future or Avalon, King Arthurs fabled tomb island. Its real location still remains unclear. But certainty is hardly as fascinating as the possibility of finding something singular and own.
The exhibition consists of works executed individually and together in which we approach the theme in various ways.
