29.6. – 22.7.2018 at gallery Å in Turku, Finland, artist Milla Toukkari and author and art historian Katja Raunio built a spatial collage in which the categorical barrier between picture and text was gradually dismantled by mixing the activities of seeing and reading. The exhibition combined pictures and texts that had been processed, printed and spatialized using varying methods. The works draw on the artists’ memories as well as on materials from contemporary culture and the history of art. They seek to bridge the distance between two people and two forms of expression.
At the core of But That Is Another Place Already (Se on jo toinen kohta) was an encounter between an artist and an author, between an other and another. The works were born through a free exchange of materials and ideas, through reactions to each other’s work and through intensifying negotiation and conversation. In the end it is often hard to determine, who authored what, just as it is impossible to draw a definitive boundary between text and picture.
But That Is Another Place Already was the artists’ first joint exhibition.
A review of the exhibition was published in the newspaper
Åbo Underrättelser (only in Swedish).
