Hiljaisia tarinoita


 Working with quiet stories

photos by Irene Rogan

On June I worked together with four artists in an old house in Rauma ( my old home town ).
My installation took place in two rooms and was about memories, identity - my little microcosm of mind and place.
I also ended up creating a performance Milky White about the same themes.
One of the artists working at the house was Irene Rogan,  Raumars residence artist at that moment.
These photos are her view and IMAGE of my work at the house
I am so impressed about her clear, profound vision,
thank you, Irene!

Mikrokosmos - Microcosm

Four Artists are working experimentally, exploring the intersections between human life, art and science at Sepän talo.
Raumars Artist in Residence Irene Rogan has invited Tarja Kyllijoki, Katarina Mannio, Leena Vainio, to work with her in an unconventional way towards the creation of art that uses the model of the microcosm as an artistic proposition and is engaged with the practice of research and experimentation as a public act.
Throughout the project the artists will open the doors for ‘public observation’ of the works-in-progress, watch out for the notices both outside Sepän talo door and through social networks. 
The project officially begins at Sepän talo on the same day the house celebrates its 90th Birthday the 22nd May 2015.

Being Frida

Thank you Patrice for the fascinating theme for this week´s DC ( Drawing Challenge ): 


This time I wanted to have fun and play and dress up, pretend being Frida Kahlo one moment.
I suppose Frida and I have something in common:
strong eyebrows, dark hair, being a painter.. and yes, 
I also do have some wounds, although they aren´t as visible, severe and overwhelming as Frida`s.  Anyway, I think being aware of fragility in  life makes me an artist.
