by Sari Liimatta
New entities in the form of jewelry and objects by Sari Liimatta arrived to our gallery.
Animals, eggs, dissections, cuts, colors, sparkles, glass beads, freshwater pearls, needles, oxidized silver, plastic toys ... enigmatic, hollow, bound, submissive, powerful, deep, delator beings... Sari represents and challenges us.
She puts a mirror in front of each of her pieces so that at the same time it generates other entities ... our perceptions of our representations of our enigmas.
And it also leads us to a path to the persistent and inescapable debate of the perversity of suffering, of the morbidity of tearing, of the preciousness of contradictions.
Collecting all this complexity and materializing it into a work is what we call an artwork.
