RISE AND SHINE
by Artemisia Vulgaris
Artemisia Vulgaris is an artists‘ collective that values associativity, sharing and artistic eutrophication. Named after a plant growing in weedy and uncultivated areas.
2022 the collective built an lake side installation at the Mänttä Art Festival in Finland. It included a church boat, water, a poster, ink, a wastewater motor, and oars.
The work complex Rise and shine by Artemisia Vulgaris is a feminine monument for the physical aspect of being and the sweet summer nights. It transfers sweat into something poetic, offers a bio break, and reclaims the history of curse words.
Artists of the collective: Maria Duncker, Niina Lehtonen-Braun, Anne Hiekkaranta, Ilona Valkonen, Mimosa Pale
