Visual artist Hilda Kozári creates a multisensory installation and exhibition titled Vantaa Black Sense in Galleria K, housed in the old 1950s Vantaa city library. One of the starting points of the show has been Vantablack, the blackest matter in the world, patented in 2014 and used by, for instance, British artist Anish Kapoor. What will surface from the darkest darkness when we use all of our senses? The artwork speaks to its visitor on how we perceive space and place, the importance of visuality in culture, the experiencing of urban environments, and the accessibility of design and art.
Asematie 7, 01300 Vantaa
