Nastja Säde Rönkkö @ Solyanka VPA, Nov 10

, 10 November 2016

Nastja Säde Rönkkö is presenting solo performance sometimes forever at Moscow’s Solyanka VPA on November 10.

Opening a month of Finnish performance at the Russian state gallery, the Helsinki-based artist — also known for her work with Luke Turner and Shia LaBeouf — focusses on humans and their relationship to nature and other beings. 

For the performance at Solyanka, Rönkkö invites audience members to exchange a private memory or recollection for either a permanent stick and poke tattoo or a temporary one, depending on whether they want to hold on to it or let it go: “Together we will decide a word or an image that will symbolize your memory and stay with you forever.”

See the Solyanka VPA website for details.**
