Kuihtuva Kesäryijy was a process that took place in collaboration with Anton Nokkonen. Born out of an adventure and conversations between the two artists and their material experiments, Kuihtuva Kesäryijy was a kind of a mandala, an assemblage made from the gathered and prepared offerings of summer 2018, that developed into a dialogue between synthetic and organic materials, a playful depiction of our world and the drought we lived through.
