HIAP Open Studio: Gaia Carboni

29 May, 7-9 pm, HIAP Studio 3

HIAP artist-in-residence Gaia Carboni (b. 1980, Italy) is inspired by the architecture of Alvar Aalto. This inspiration appears in Gaia’s work through the classic technique of engraving and digital printing, resulting in organic forms that are undergoing metamorphosis.

During her residency in HIAP Carboni has explored the city, keenly observing interesting handicrafts, glass manufacturing, industrial design and architecture. In her project, she is mixing interesting local art objects with the topics of her artistic research. Images and forms are melted together and realised in different materials and techniques.

Gaia Carboni opens her Cable Factory studio to the public and shows new artworks that were born in Helsinki. The evening presents also DJ Carboni and refreshments are served. It’s a party – Welcome!
