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.
Join us on Friday 29th July for artist presentations by Kathryn Zazenski and Trevor Amery.
Kathryn Zazenski and Trevor Amery are mixed media artists from the US who make work in reaction to their environments. They have spent the past two months living near Tampere, Finland, and have been creating work that explores relationships and ritual practices through culture, language, and physical environment. Amery is using wood to explore social dynamics while Zazenski has been creating new systems to visually experience language. The resulting work includes performance, installation, and documentation through video, drawing, and photography.
