Presenting NART 2021 annual exhibition Point of No Return. Attunement of Attention participating artist:
VERA ANTTILA (1991) is a Finnish-Swede art pedagogue and artist interested in hydrofeminism, yellow cups, material metaphors and drifting. Her practise is collaborative and multidisciplinary, combining cultural jamming and activism with aesthetics of everyday life, and driven by an ecological concern for the future. She feels the need to drink fluids on the go, holding yellow cups, not sure where exactly they will take her, while practicing ways of paying attention to the origins of matter and knowledge. She is currently conducting her artistic research in the Art Education MA programme at Aalto University in Helsinki, reflecting on ways of drifting with attention amidst the climate change crisis as an embodied concept, a visual essay.
Vera participates in the exhibition with her event drifting with yellow attention to cups (2021), which will take place at the end of May. More information will be published on NART’s webpage and social media.
