Nastja Säde Rönkkö‘s performance project and exhibition sometimes forever was on at Moscow’s Solyanka VPA, which ran from November 10 to December 9, 2016.
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.”**
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
