A portico by the river undergoes transformations as hours pass, seasons change and centuries follow each other.

IC-98 (originally Iconoclast, founded in 1998) is Visa Suonpää and Patrik Söderlund. IC-98's projects often take the form of installations or publications, combining research, text, drawing and animation. Their intensely abstracted, identifiable visual language weaves myriad bridges between the material and mythical, individual and collective, nature and culture. The works concern the body politic, social formations and architectural constructions, different ecologies and the presence of human and natural history in everyday life. The works of IC-98 has been presented in exhibitions, biennales and projects around Nordic countries, Europe, The USA and Asia. In 2015, IC-98 represented Finland at Venice Biennale.
