Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.
Cherry Love is an adult girl without love. She has always had utterly conflicted associations towards her own body and she still doesn’t completely accept it. Helsinki’s queer circles and the world of burlesque artists excite her to make the decision to put herself on show. In particular the idea attracts her that each body can be beautiful and worth looking at. Cherry has prepared herself by reading Barthes’ and Breton’s ideas about love.
Cherry has decide to experiment.
Here it begins! Cherry dresses herself into the only fitting cherry dress and decides to get herself a tattoo.
Come and tell Cherry about your own experiences, share hints or convince her about the perfect tattoo for her. You can also hear presentations on Cherry’s thoughts about love. Cherry warmly welcomes you.
