White Arc – Objects and Tools of Laila Pullinen
A collection of photographs inspired by an inheritance of sculptor Laila Pullinen (1933—2015), and in particular the tools she used. Grinding stones, chisels and plaster casts are not primarily photographed as illustrating their purpose – instead, they are portrayed as representing their potential as a remembrance. Objects highlight the themes of mortality and permanence, the presence of the author, and the fragmentation of intention — as seen and interpreted by another author and experiencer.
