Common ground group exhibition
Group Exhibition in Aalto University 29.10.- 08.11.2021
Welcome to the opening event on Friday 29th of October 4-6pm!
Common Ground presents 11 projects made in the Contemporary Design programme’s ‘Personal Exploration’ course. The works were built around the theme ‘Ground’, which each student interpreted from their own perspective.
The starting point for the course was an excursion to Koli, Eastern Finland. The change of environment gave time and space to start the creative process and personal exploration. Koli worked as an inspirational source for the works, where each student found things that excite, scare, interest or troubles them. Issues around the environmental crisis as well as more personal challenges were brought up. The shared experiences formed a strong common ground within the students. The exhibition pieces tackle these issues through their subjects, materials and techniques and by offering a space to stop for a moment.
