KUKKII is a landscape built up from one hundred wooden sculptures. It reflects the continuing change and growth in ourselves and in the surrounding environment. The sculpture series represents nature’s diversity, sensibility and pure beauty. The series is made out of wood with a delicate and poetic style, using different kinds of carving techniques, from hand carving to CNC milling.
The installation designed by the Master Cabinetmaker Antrei Hartikainen reminds us of the importance of the memorable and meaningful moments that allow for calming, observing and experiencing creativity. It depicts a moment of freedom when there is room and time to just be and wonder about the surrounding. There is a hope that urban development will enable such ideas in the future and offer aesthetics as part of people’s everyday life.
The installation is made in collaboration with designer Laura Väinölä.
The installation is part of the HDW Hop City Installations. Finnish Cultural Foundation and Asko Foundation have supported the installation.
