Prosthesis group – transforming installation (2005)

In Myymälä2 gallery in Helsinki, Finland was introduced the process of making art in a dialogue of two artists, a space and public. In the installation from Anna Rikkinen and Nelli Tanner the space and body of work were growing together during three weeks.

The starting point was a collection of daily objects that could be connected to leg prosthesis with their shape and material. Choices for materials and techniques were made in consideration of supportive structures of a house.

The space was transforming through subtle changes. Adding and removing layers on the walls revealed fragments of the history of the gallery. The space was considered as a body that jewellery like prosthesis is emphasising and completing. A wooden leg of a chair was combined with a nature made branch with hinges. A carving made on the wall got a silver frame.

The process was documented daily with photos and the selection was placed on the wall.

There was a challenge for a viewer to take time, to stop, to find and to accept the unfinished.
