Toikka Jenni

Color fields unfold as a female figure weaves her way amongst them. Changing viewpoints together with her gestures create order around the fields. The seemingly random pieces slot into place while the rhythms of sound, movement and gaze give shape to a space they all share. Installation version also available.
