Virpi Vesanen-Laukkanen (FI) has created an installation in the bus Pitsibussi/Spetsbuss/The Crochet Line. Three short films by Swedish filmmaker Mårten Nilsson and choreographer Gunilla Heilborn (The Herman Wiklund Triolgy) will also be shown.
Pitsibussi/Spetsbuss/The Crochet Line creates positive feelings that connect to everyday life. Travelling by bus is a smart climate choice and millions of people each day use this form of travel. The aim is to elucidate joy, colour and humour that are so often lost in daily travel.
With playfulness and nostalgia, passengers can be activated and enticed to communicate with one another or get in touch with their memories. The installation in the bus is based on crocheted table cloths acquired at flea markets.
In her art, Virpi Vesanen-Laukkanen plays with and parodies, in a kind way, images and myths about femininity. People of all ages find it easy to approach her fairy tale-like artworks. Virpi Vesanen-Laukkanen lives and works in Helsinki.
Curators: Inger Bergström, Lotte Nilsson-Välimaa and Maria Sandstig (SE).
Using the potency of textile techniques and the materials’ inherent references is what characterises her work. The focus is often on the three-dimensional and the spatial in which textile is employed as a kind of building material. Inger Bergström was educated at Konstfack, Univeristy of Art, Crafts and Design, Stockholm where she is professor.
Identity and alienation are recurring issues in Maria Sandstig’s work, with the starting-point in the private. The materials vary according to themes, spaces and contexts. She has pursued several collaborations with colleagues. A rewarding and exciting one is her conversations with a landscape architect about play, with the focus on children’s and young people’s places for play in public space. This resulted in a play sculpture for Vitabergsparken, Stockholm. Maria Sandstig was educated at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts.
Educated at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design Stockholm, in textiles and sculpture. Introducing something of the private into the public is a red thread in her work. In her photo and material based work, the human being appears to be engaged in an activity. Collaborations in various constellations of artists are ongoing in parallel to her own activities.
has taken an interest in artistic depictions and processes in various public places, including theatre and film. In her work one can trace an interest in patterns and architecture, often a play with scales and preferably projects in collaboration with other disciplines. She is currently working with an art project for Psykiatrins Hus in Uppsala and with costumes for Skånes Dansteater.
