Settling in

Vappu Rossi

Charcoal-drawn outlines of a room appear on the walls of a cellar space: windows, a chair, a clock and plants that start to blossom. Light moves around indicating the passing of time. The work depicts, in a poetic way, settling in at a new home.

Vappu Rossi (Author), Vappu Rossi (Director)
Vappu Rossi is a visual artist working in Helsinki, Finland. She has a bachelor's degree from the University of Art and Design Helsinki and a master's degree from the Academy of Fine Arts. Her work focuses on portraying humanity both in the emotional and temporal scale. The questions of presence and embodiment form another main theme. Rossi’s style is pensive and minimalistic both in humour and colour. Contemplating on change and passing of time as well as visualising slow processes or magical metamorphoses are recurring elements in her works. Her videos and installations are either silent or have an extremely stripped down soundscape. Rossi’s work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and festivals around the world since the late 1990s and her works can be found in many domestic and international collections.
