Lautasen Kokoiset Silmät: Eyes as Big as Plates

 

Eyes as Big as Plates is an ongoing collaborative venture by Riitta Ikonen (Finland) and Karoline Hjorth (Norway). Inspired by characters from Nordic folklore and personifications of nature, the project has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. The artists have collaborated since 2011 with retired farmers, fishermen, zoologists, plumbers, opera singers, housewives, academics and 90-year old parachutists to generate new perspectives on who we are and where we belong.

Nov-Dec          Eric Hongisto  25th Contemporary Finnish American Artist Series
