Visual artist Hannele Rantala’s work is no stranger to strangeness. Many of her works deal with themes such as migration, homelessness, change and otherness, which intertwine with questions of longing and belonging.

Visual artist Caroline Slotte has a gift of blowing new life into found, familiar objects. For over a decade, she has worked with ready-made, mainly ceramic objects.

Slotte’s foundation for the series Landscape Multiple is familiar to many of us. She creates a series of compelling dioramas by manipulating old illustrated china plates, variations of which are familiar to many of us from family suppers. She piles the plates on top of each other and carves through the images, crafting a multi-layered visual narrative of her own.
