Julkiset rakennustyöt

2019
Pia Sirén

In the work Julkiset rakennustyöt a bunch of construction sites will appear around Helsinki, which intention is to build nature. It’s about an act made in space, designed in a particular location to create change in the urban environment. The materials used in the constructions are scaffolding, attention fencing, plywood, tarpaulins and plastics, that will communicate about transition and movement. The work brings forth contemporary fragments of forests, artificial vegetation and disappearing illusions of the landscape.
