Wash

Hippolyte Studio, Helsinki 2016
Text

Wash is an installation consisting of nine photographs and 197 sponges on the walls and floors of Hippolyte Studio. The images for the installation were photographed during 2015–2016 on the south head of Utö island – on the last shore before the open sea. In the piece the human and non-human worlds reach out to each other.

Green, a sister work of Wash, will be exhibited at SIC 7.5. – 5.6.2016.
