This installation explores the purity of shape and form through the surface: Planet HER-BB is a picture-perfect installation that feels like plastic. It gives a glimpse into the planet’s vegetation. The exaggerated smoothness of the plants and flora are bulbous and colourful, practically perfect in their shine. I strived to remove every trace that could reveal the process behind the piece. What is essential is the surface, repetition and a rootless state of being that depicts the problematics of productivity.

Planet HER-BB installation was exhibited in a group exhibition “Käännekohta” at Gallery Sculptor, Helsinki in 2017.
