Anna Torkkel: Present
Anna Torkkel’s new piece Present aims towards the fragility and softness we are. The performance suggests that the essential is herein, visible and in the moment now. The piece continues Torkkel’s long-term working on presence and simplicity.
Every showing of the piece happens in different space and without the shelter of a constructed stage set. Each performance is unique, new and fleeting event. After its premiere in Titanik Gallery in Turku, the piece is seen in Kutomo in Turku and in galleries Sorbus and SIC in Helsinki. In December Present is shown at Wäinö Aaltonen museum in Turku as part of Bodybuilding exhibition.
