Hiisi 2022

 

Place: Lohja City

satu-minna hiisi lasercut sculpture




The Hiisi sculpture got its idea from old Finnish folk tales. Hiisi was once a place of worship or a spirit being. 


In the Hiisi sculpture, the human face stretches and becomes fish-like. When viewed from the side, the sculpture is like an archipelago, from the back it looks like a fish and from the front it looks like a human face or scull.


The body of the sculpture consists of overlapping laser-cut steel sheets. Mirror-polished steel plates form a visual labyrinth. In the water, the fish's scaly surface is sometimes streamlined and inconspicuous, sometimes sparklingly beautiful.

The Dew sculpture is located in front of the H-building of Pori Central Hospital. The H-building houses the obduction department where medical autopsies are performed and  deceased are given to their relatives. The Dew sculpture honors grief of relatives. The sculpture mimics moods of Japanese haiku presenting emotions of loss through the imagery of nature:




Like sleep to sleep  

I was born into the world  

and the mind is so light: 

like morning dew 

I will one day disappear.
