About Terike Haapoja’s solo exhibition ‘Suljettu Joukko – Avoin kesto’

The exhibition ‘Suljettu Joukko – Avoin kesto’ is a gardenlike whole, which takes advantage of environmental research methods. The works presented in the exhibition deal in various ways with life-sustaining processes and with how technology is used to observe them. Through technology the viewer becomes part of the garden’s metabolism.

The exhibition brings about the idea of living image and of eventness that tends to escape our observation. As part of Kiasma Theatre ‘s ‘/ ‘ event, the exhibition can be seen as a proposal on performativity.
