The body of work by Hanna Ryynänen dives into the essence of ourselves. In her work Hanna states that our identity is dependent on other people and interaction. A piece of jewellery is seen as a mediator that brings it all together. Carved in granite, which is the bedrock from our area, the different identities of the artist herself becomes visible and real. Hanna’s method of working is based on commitment, skill and patience. The self is stored in the stone. / Jenni Sokura, lecturer
