Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

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.

Riga – Tallin, March 24, 2014

I turn my face to the sun. I just stand there breathing in the sun and hearing the sounds of the cars passing by… Ten minutes pass, and ten more..It seems the problem can’t be fixed so quickly. I climb up on a little dune with big pine trees strangely located in the middle of nowhere, I breathe in the air, and suddenly I decide to find an access to my own aloneness right now.

A-project is a personal and artistic trial to access the transformative space of Aloneness.

A woman finds herself forced to face her loneliness. Entering it opens a new space and discoveries for her.

This is a multi-disciplinary performance by Dana Indāne (Latvia), a performing artist and contemporary voice improvisation student at the Estonian academy of Music and Theatre, in collaboration with sound designer Martin Hein. This performance is a part of the creative labratory work at Taavi Kerikmäe’s Experimental Music studio (emta). Texts by Dana Indāne, Haruki Murakami, Kefas Berlin.
