Welcome to the closing event of the installations Seven Recipients and Field Circulation by artist Laura Soisalon-Soininen.
Hosted by Frame Contemporary Art Finland, the event brings together two recent works by artist Laura Soisalon-Soininen. The installation Seven Recipients was commissioned in 2020 as part of Frame’s Rehearsing Hospitalities programme and has not been publicly shown because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Field Circulation is an installation located at a regenerative farm Kilpiä in Tölli village. Curated by Saara Karhunen, it was commissioned for the project Trophic Verses facilitated by artist Teemu Lehmusruusu.
In the closing event, Frame’s Head of Programme Jussi Koitela, curator Saara Karhunen, and producer Teemu Lehmusruusu will briefly introduce Laura Soisalon-Soininen’s works, followed by a conversation with the artist. The audience is invited to have drinks and snacks after the discussion.
The event is open for all but requires registration in advance. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, the number of participants is limited and we will not be able to accept your registration if the spots are full.
The event is fully booked.
Hope to see you soon!
More about the works:
Seven Recipients by Laura Soisalon-Soininen is the second work in a series of artistic commissions for Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s office space. An installation composed of seven distinct artworks which inhabit the office foyer, the work is an ode to various transitions and seasons that take place in life. Each element has been gathered, measured, arranged, re-arranged and crocheted together while walking in the lakes and shores of Helsinki city and the Uusimaa region.
Seven Recipients is commissioned in the context of Rehearsing Hospitalities, Frame’s public programme for 2019−2023.
