Mari-Leen Kiipli's exhibition „Husa”


Husa is a grove that is filled with postures of thinking and feeling driven by lushy landscapes of city and beyond. Our full breath takes about three seconds while plants inhale in a day and exhale during the night. This different rhythm puts us in fast forward pace. The scene is carried by night winds, emotional wreckage, cars, building lots, flying insects and movement of plants.

Husa is made of

a set of unbroken car windows
bent armature, concrete
water, dripping
second hand jewellery
lace boots
Ensis shells
twining plants of Ipomoea genus
runner beans
