In 2014 about a dozen artists inaugurated MUU Gallery's new Cable Factory space by collaborating in a painting performance that took place through much of the month allotted for the exhibition. Thus, visitors were treated to the gradual unfolding of a giant painted installation that made use of all available wall space.
My geometric shapes started to take shape several days after most of the other artists' had started their work. These shapes not only responded to what the other artists were painting, but they also filled in many of the gaps between their compositions. Moreover, the shapes alluded to some of the architectural features present in the Cable Factory and other Helsinki buildings. Because they position right around the space, my forms also worked to establish a sense of rhythm or, in other words, helped unify the diverse collection of visual elements that had spread across the gallery's walls.
