Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

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.

Fursaxa is the solo-project of the American psych-folk queen Tara Burke. For the past 10 years she has charmed audiences all over the US and Europe with her haunting music. Her compositions are build with flutes, percussion, keyboards, guitars, mandolins and especially her strong voice. The hypnotically beautiful sound of Fursaxa will take the listener through nocturnal realms. Voices from the shadows tempt us with their familiarity like the stars leading our way. At the Ptarmigan Fursaxa will perform together with Helena Espval from the Espers.


Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu plays partly improvised collage tunes with dumpster dived bollywood tapes, toys and effects.
