Aims of the project
As artistic ambition the Comment project wishes to develop dialogue between
artists whose traditions differ. Cultural differences and a dialogue which
stems from that will be placed into the center in this project, where
artists comment on each others work in the artistic terms.
"Comment" project wishes to develop a new kind of dialogue between Finnish
and Russian artists. With this dialogue we wish to unite artists and create
new ideas for new projects and collaborations in the future.
"Comment" is an innovate experiment, and we cannot predict the outcome in
advance. In the Russian visual art tradition they are not accustomed to
comment on other artists works so it is an interesting challenge! However
we do not wish to place one culture or tradition above the other one, but on
the contrary our aim is to create something entirely new out of these
The foundation for the project was created in Olonyets during
the First Internatial Karelian Land Art festival
organised by the Artists Union of Karelian Republic, and where Tiina Hallakorpi and Kaarina Ormio were
invited as representative artists of Lila.
