Artist list

Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen, Jenni Sokura, Tarja Tuupanen
Hibernate is a group formed by four Finnish jewellery artists. Their new project Tableware & Tools is now shown for the first time in an exhibition at Platina. Within the group, they work as independent artists around common shared interests. During get-togethers, the artists presented their ideas or sketches for the others to gain feedback and criticism. These meetings fed the process allowing the shared information and thoughts to multiply. Co-operation supports independent working, which is also the main point to work as a group. It goes without saying that all these meetings were organized around dinner, around tableware and tools. The exhibited works move between jewellery and installations.


Helena Lehtinen has taken a retrospective point of view to the topic and commented or reacted to her older series of works in the frames of the topic. Her sensitive approach is recognizable.

Eija Mustonen´s approach is rural. Metal is hammered, wood is carved straight and honestly. One of her material is wooden burl, a round deformation in the tree trunk. It is used often in the context of folk craft to make cups or bowls, and its odd connotations follow the material into contemporary use.

Jenni Sokura has lately been working with themes such as food and cultural meanings as well as Finnish cultural traditions. Her bold "packed lunch" objects tell us about fast food culture with its wrappings and layers, the table manners and food service settings. 

Tarja Tuupanen works with marble, mainly ready-made material, which has originally been tableware. This time the scale has become bigger than in earlier works and a step apart from close body connection. The holiness of everyday life, the importance of common tasks in the kitchen and the items related to this are the starting points of her work.


The exhibition is part of Finland 100th anniversary program and supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, South Karelia Regional Fund and Swedish-Finnish Cultural Foundation
