The press release for Dear Diary explains a process of diary writing. On one side of the paper the artist writes an observational and “as emotionless as possible” account of what has happened during the day. On the other side she writes how she felt.
See the event image below for an excerpt of the diary, written in Nida, Lithuania. It will be interesting to see how Rönkkö translates or extends the diary, which sits between intimate act and formal presentation to a physical gallery space.
Rönkkö is a part of of collective LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, whose live event in an elevator last month aqnb covered.
