Martina Miño and Arlene Tucker co-created two pieces for the Frozen Species group show.  Edibility (sound and video installation) and Let Me Feed You (interactive site-specific environmental installation) explore ways of interacting and commenting on animalism and roles in humanity.


 


Frozen Species is a processual exhibition performed by 17 foreigner artists living in Helsinki and organized by the curator/artists Gian Luigi Biagini (IT) and John Dunn (Cascadia) performed on February 24, 2015. Each of the 17 artists built their own totem-installation on skis. The 15 totems will be towed in a parade on an iced surface, an urban iced desert that will be occupied by the artists as if it were a huge open white cube, a no man’s land for a living nomadic exhibition, open to all contingencies and phase-shiftings which occur throughout the process. The exhibition wants to provide an unfamiliar site-specific experience to the artists and to the public. It also tinges itself with political and polemical issues, because the 15 foreigner artists, as a singular multitude, strive to express their own specific wording within a cold environment in which they are frozen. They are species that fight for an heterogeneous vital space on the edge of the structural monoculturalism and fake multiculturalism of Finland. They want to break the ice in which they are frozen and thus enter into in a smooth space with new potentialities.
