Aftermath series1-4

Whilst 4 drawings made it out of the country to be shown at the Kohtuus–Yhteys–Tasa-arvo exhibition,
Covid 19 and lockdown prevented planned artist visits and exchanges taking place. Thanks to Arts Council
Wales Stabilisation Fund, I was able to extend the opportunity by making companion pieces to the 4 Aftermath
drawings and connecting with Marja Bonada, (artist and co-curator of the exhibition). Creative digital
collaboration, exploration of the exhibition themes and sharing of mutual responses informed our respective artworks and practices.

For Marja’s work see  @marjabonada and read our blog for more details.

Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo

Aftermath 1_

One of four drawings sent to Finland’s GalleriaKONE as part of Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo the international summer exhibition in Hämeenlinna, with 34 artists from Finland, Germany and Wales.
Jun 27 – Aug 29 2020
Raatihuoneenkatu 14, Hämeenlinna, Finland.

Based in a former shopping centre, the show’s title,  ” Kohtuus – Yhteys – Tasa-arvo: Cooperation, Moderation, Equality” is a rethinking of the Enlightenment motto “Freedom, Brotherhood, Equality”. Co-curators Maija Helasvuo and Marja Bonada say the thinking is that the individualistic ideas of the Enlightenment have brought us to capitalism, and eventually to climate change and the collapse of capitalism. The task now is to ask what we got wrong, and how we might need to rethink those ideas.
