Four Artists are working experimentally, exploring the intersection between human life, art and science at Sepän talo.

The project officially begun at Sepän talo on the same day the house celebrated its 90thBirthday the 22nd May 2015.

Raumars Artist in Residence Irene Rogan has invited Tarja Kyllijoki, Katariina Mannio and Leena  Vainio, to  work with her in an unconventional way towards the creation of art  thatuses the model of the microcosm as an artistic proposition and  is engaged with the practice of research and experimentation as a public act. The artists will work independently on their own art experiments which may or may not resolve into final objects and in a world in which their projects may extend into other spaces or create more intimate spaces for themselves – thus experimentation examines the idea that sometimes the journey is more interesting than the destination.

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. On the 16th - 17th June there will be an opportunity to view the final collection of the experimental works and their outcomes.
