Marikki Hakola

Deadine presents the renewing powers of nature as the antithesis of the ideology of endless growth symbolized by urban environment. The black line – deadline – is not in the end drawn between life and death, but between two opposite worldviews. Turppi Group (1982-83) was an artists' collective formed by Marikki Hakola, Lea Kantonen, Pekka Kantonen, Martti Kukkonen, and Jarmo Vellonen.
