Pauline Sauveur: [to be continued] – a mobile opening

October 24, 5:30 pm, a metro wagon, Itäkeskus metro station

The opening of the installation [to be continued] by Franco-Finnish author-photographer Pauline Sauveur will be held in the metro wagon at Itäkeskus metro station from 5.30 to 6.30. At 6.30 the wagon will leave to Ruoholahti, stopping in each station.

The installation presents the results of a two-day workshop held for metro passengers. People use metro everyday without paying much attention to the travel itself. In the workshop passengers could view the travel from a new, more playful perspective. The installation, made in collaboration with Helsinki metro users, is constructed from photographs and texts in three languages, French, Finnish and English. The installation is on view for two weeks starting from October 24.
The metro wagon will run the normal shifts daily. The wagon will leave each evening at 6 pm from Ruoholahti metro station – if you want to be sure to catch it.

The project is a part of the Social Responsibility and Design programme. The event is coordinated by the Institut français de Finlande, HSL and HKL. Pauline Sauveur is an artist-in-residence at HIAP in the frame of Arts de Sign – Signalling art as Social Design in October. Arts de Signs and Social Responsibility and Design are part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012.
