Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
Please join us for the unveiling of Carpe Minuta Prima.
After two days of buying minutes of time Brian Lobel and Ptarmigan invite YOU back to ScoreStore: Art Kiosk at 2pm on 1 September to buy your minute back in an single edition DVD or walk away the exclusive owner of a fragment of a stranger's life.
Carpe Minuta Prima (meaning 'Seize the Minute') playfully explores themes of economy, the value of our time and our work, the over-documenting of our lives and what it means to sign away your soul.
Carpe Minuta Prima is supported by Nordic Culture Point (as part of the Due Diligence Development Circuit project), Helsinki City Council and Ptarmigan.
