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.
A media performance on our inner and outer animals,
“My mom is a wolf, my dad…” is a talk about healing processes. What do our inner animals tell us? How can we enter into a dialogue with them? Current Ptarmigan artist-in-residence Camilla Graff Junior, aka former punk-rock musician Mona Motel, shares her experience based on autobiographical material, photos, video clips, a collection of plastic animals and family stories.
