Towards fragility + softness: Anna Torkkel’s Present examines the essence of the here + now in Helsinki, Nov 16 – 18

, 16 November 2017

Anna Torkkel‘s Present performance is on at Helsinki’s Sorbus Gallery on November 16 and SIC Gallery on November 18.

As part of the Turku-based artist’s ongoing interest in presence and simplicity, the new show comes as part of the Baltic Circle Festival program and moves towards an idea of “the fragility and softness we are,” where the essence of life is in the here and now. 

Every showing of the piece happens in a different space, without the comfort of a constructed stage set, making each performance a unique, new and fleeting event. Produced by Ehkä-production and Torkkel, while featuring the artist along with Tashi Iwaoka, Mira Kautto, Johanna Porola, Piia Rinne, Riikka Thitz and Masi Tiitta, the event follows its premiere at Turku’s Titanik.
