Excavation Site

In march 2020, visual artist AP Nguyen came back home to Hanoi, Vietnam, in order to avoid the virus in the UK. Having little means of production and context for making conceptual art, she turned to clay and decided to learn a completely new craft. At first, she struggled to navigate the world of Vietnamese pottery- with all of its mystery and village secrecy. But over the months, she came to befriend and gain the trust of a Bát Tràng family who lets her use their family kiln and even their safely-guarded glaze recipes.

Jussi Goman

With bold treatment of space, an intense palette of colors, and generous brushstrokes, Jussi Goman creates an electric and spontaneous illusion of movement. Goman adds a fresh, playful twist to classical motifs borrowed from art history, such as facial portraits and still lifes: adhesive bandages and bubble gum-like globs of acrylic paint protrude from the surface as if to remind us of the limits of two-dimensionality, yet also of the limitless potential of painting. The acrylic paint endows his colors with a sense of freshness and buoyancy, while also coating the surface in a smooth plastic sheen. Jussi Goman graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2008. Goman’s work is found in the collections of major Finnish museums including the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art and the Helsinki Art Museum.

Textile Design: Kustaa Saksi

Kustaa Saksi (b. 1975, Kouvola, Finland) builds worlds of playful, paradoxical and troubling yet inviting shapes and environments pulled out of the ordinary. Combining organic qualities with uniquely detailed textures with rich colour palettes and experimental material use, Saksi is creating contemporary objects. His abstracted Hypnopompic tapestry series sits somewhere between the states of dreaming and awakening – surrealist and sensational. First Symptoms collection draws its inspiration and texture from the scientific examination and personal experience of migraine.

Kim Simonsson: The Year of the Moss Children

The Moss People are gatherers, decked out in readymades, wearing cauliflower shoes and shocks of feathers. They merge figurative sculpture, found objects, and a radical combination of handiwork and industrial fabrication (the hand-sculpted clay figures are covered in epoxy and flocked with nylon after firing) to a mesmerizing effect. “The name Moss People refers to children’s innate camouflage,” explains Simonsson. “The moss green figures blend perfectly into their natural surroundings, just as a soft carpet of moss covers the ground, rocks, and tree trunks and acts as a sort of protection. In the Moss People’s world, lost and disconnected children, evoking different characters… choose leaders and end up creating false idols.” They communicate through their own symbolic, visual language. Like migratory birds, they move from one place to another on a quest for meaning, seeking re-enchantment.
