Aroniathon I at Objekti 4

Aroniathon I photo series intervention as part of Group Exhibition OBJEKTI 4.
Espoonportti, Espoo – June 14 – Sept. 2, 2018

For the first time the Aroniathon I series is shown in its entirety at the fourth edition of OBJEKTI. An outdoor exhibition of contemporary sculpture, installation and environmental art in and around the center of the town of Espoo (Fin).

The setting for Aroniathon I is the stoney, asfalty, windy environment of a road and pedestrian/bike zone that passes under the rail tracks of Espoo train station. The work consists of two parts. Aligning the road, 41 posters of 160cm x 120cm are hung against a granite wall according to a particular aronia mathematical ratio. Secondly, in the pedestrian zone, a poster is mounted containing the 23 photos of the Aronia plantation marathon runner, taken with imperfect Smema camera.
