About the artists

Pia Männikkö

Body, space and their interaction is the point of departure in Männikkö’s art. Männikkö is interested in how we observe our surroundings; she is inspired by the different natural and physical phenomena and varying spatial scales. The bodily connection between a viewer and an artwork is substantial in Männikkö´s art as she aspires to create immersive situations and spaces to enter for the viewer. Mapping the passage of time, as well as creating objects that gradually grow and change, has central role in her working process.

Páll Haukur

In his art, Páll Haukur examines and deconstructs the concept of an object. What makes the sculpture making for Haukur, is the immediate situations of objects and their relationship to one another; the tension between the material and the physics. His work often represents change or flux, either through the material condition of the work itself, or through the relation to the body in the space. The result is an aesthetic experience that constantly asks the viewers to situate and re-situate themselves in relation to the object. An object is never only an object, but also those things that make objecthood possible in the first place.
