Mix media installation

(Mal)Function consists of works made during a two-month residency at the Skaftfell Center for Art in East Iceland. The works were built on site, and some of the gallery’s permanent fixtures, as well as a selection of household items from the residency apartment, were incorporated in the installation. Stepping away from the residency’s scenic surroundings, the works draw from the familiar features found in the village: picket fences, staircases and practical devices of the everyday. The mundane shapes and objects in the exhibition became visualisations of self-assuring catchphrases such as No Pain No Gain

With the kind support of Skaftfell Center for Visual Art and The Arts Council of Finland.
