Iida Pii An attempt to solve all the logistical problems of a sculpture
Everything is bursting
The world is a bedroom chair with a big pile of little used clothes
It would feel bad to make any lumps now that they won’t fit anywhere
I feel like I don’t want to make more that I can carry
I’ve already trained deadlifts so that I can handle how heavy things are
I’ll make a butterfly out of a windbreaker jacket
Small, and a for a moment, big
It’s waiting in its bag like a raincoat
For the moment to emerge
It’s situational awareness that lumps lack
Only change is eternal
Although the sculptures usually try to argue otherwise
Adapt or die
But we won’t die
Because we’re goretex, baby
I’ll turn my life into airgel and come to you
I’ll pack it up in the hallway
The exhibition has been supported by the Paulo Foundation and the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
IIDA PII S.1989
The main materials of my works are thoughts and feelings. Sometimes, to assemble them, I also need to purchase and make different utensils.
I follow a pale blue thread.
From the edges of mind maps, you can find crumbs that attract each other, condensing what is essential between them.
Everything connects with
-extended Lundia shelves
