Sculpture by Brenda Purtsak.
VENT Space is proud to present Brenda Purtsak and Marleen Suvi’s exhibition “So that the body would not forget”. The exhibition will be open from the 16th-19th of June, from 12 pm – 7 pm daily.
In this exhibition, both artists place an individual into a larger world. Through this they look to find intertwined places where people, nature, and the universe become interdependent. It is important to remember that the concept of balance varies in different reflections. In this way, this circle constantly acquires different meanings according to the dimensions – narrowing and expanding when viewed viewed through different bodies.
Both artists have their own understanding of the relationship between body and soul. There are common beliefs between them, however this may differ from each other in the next moment. Combining the inner worlds of these two people the exhibition becomes a new kind of breathing organism.
