The OBSERVE exhibition by Antrei Hartikainen is creating an atmosphere where one can sense how important it is to observe and explore our environment.
The exhibition presents delicate sculptures, furniture, objects and working processes in one, as an organic whole. Products and unique pieces, which answer to the imperatives of practicality, craftsmanship and the medium itself; with a desire to reveal the myriad possibilities of wood.
"I observe the seasons, the effect of light and shadow in the environment, and attempt to transfer this delicate yet powerful transformation into my material, wood. I spot interesting shapes and subjects in everything, from nature to architecture and our everyday environment."
