Hanna Marno is a sculptor originally from Helsinki. She presents her art often site-specifically in various environments, communities, and galleries. Marno processes the feeling of being an outsider through different slimes and mediums that bind people together in her pieces. Besides her exhibitions, Marno participates in Gallery Oksasenkatu 11’s activity as an artist member.
” “Floaters” is a light installation and variant of urban space and examines observation. The work is painted fully with three shades of white, and together the surface looks like it’s trembling and more bright than it is in reality. The impression of the space is unreal and static. The installation thinks that all the surfaces of the city are alive; it is an animated city. “Floaters” can be seen on a bright day looking at the sky, and they seem to be unfocused pear strings or subtle dust particles on the surface of the eye. Then we see the freely moving compressions on our eyes’ gel-like corpus vitreum. If we saw everything we observe, we wouldn’t be able to process everything. Our brains protect us from too much information. Therefore, all the pictures are processed.”
