Tea Mäkipää

Early Harvest
9 July to 11 November 2017

The art of Tea Mäkipää revolves around urgent ecological issues: what do the finiteness of natural resources, the extinction of animal and plant species or climatic change mean for our future? With a unique blend of serious concern and critical humour this Finnish artist addresses the possible consequences of the world's consumer culture for the human being and his environment. Her starting point is her own personal perspective of the world, a world in which the things we do often conflict with the ethical principles by which we choose to live.

The exhibition shows works that have won Tea Mäkipää international acclaim in recent years, including the submerged, precariously tilting house Atlantis, the outdoor installation 1:1 and the photo panoramas World of Plenty and Years after Zero.

In addition to these works, the artist has created new works at the request of Museum Schloss Moyland comprising large-format photo montages and architectural elements combined to form to impressive installations.
