Raija jokinen & AIno Kajaniemi
Exhibition is open in Ümraniye, Istanbul
4. Oct – 12. Nov, 2013
Three of these pieces were made on September 2013 and the making process of the second from the left can be seen on a video (www.raijajokinen.fi).
In addition to torsos I hanged portraits and some abstract pieces too.
Opening on the 3. Oct, 2013.
On the 4. Oct we organized a short workshop to children. The theme was the gördes knot that we have in common. We all know oriental and turkish carpets and in Finland we have a traditional textile called ryijy (a rug) that is made with a similar knot as the oriental carpets. We learned how to make the knot and discussed how the technique could be used in a new way.
It was fun! Thanks to all the participants and organizers!
