Leaky Light_3

Leaky Light solo exhibition by Bartaku at SOLU Space consists of three mixed-media installations featuring sound art, ceramics, symbiont bacteria, as well as video, photo and text documentations.

The works on display shed light on Bartaku’s deepening entanglement with Baroa belaobara. The constellation is part of Bartaku’s ongoing artistic research on light, energy and bodies.

Two works are shown for the first time in Finland. One evolves since its first public momentum at Pixelache 2016.

Leaky Light is inspired by stubborn seed, leaky light, bone rhythm, and hidden hubris. With special thanks to Baroa belaobara.
