Curated by Margarita Osepyan and funded in collaboration with Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Embassy of Finland, the participatory performance held at the Russian capital’s space saw the Helsinki-based artist inviting participants to exchange a private memory for a tattoo. They could either be meaningful one wanted to keep via a permanent ‘stick-and-poke’ tattoo, administered by Säde Rönkkö herself, or an unwanted one that would fade over time with a temporary decal.

“Together we will decide a word or an image that will symbolize your memory and stay with you forever.”**
