Performance and celebration
summer evening with friends
Harakka Collective organized together with other artists from Harakka Artists' House a performative happening ABLE 20.8.2020 18-22. The happening was a magical evening by the CABLE sign on the northern side of Harakka Island, facing Kaivopuisto and Bar Mattolaituri.
During the event the water area between three CABLE signs (Harakka island, Uunisaari island & Kaivopuisto) was declared as the ABLE Triangle where everything is possible. Aoi Yoshizawa and Petra Vehviläinen rowed in a performative manner to cover all CABLE signs with fabric leaving only word ABLE visible. Meanwhile on Harakka island audience, friends and colleagues danced to the music played by dj Marika Maijala and enjoyed the delights of black & yellow table serving only black & yellow colored treats.
In a warm and beautiful August evening a huge banderole was painted and held up together by the Harakka island shore to communicate questions to the audiences sailing by or hanging around on the other side of the narrow strait. Also Annette Arlander joined the event with her performance With a Rowan – Pihlajan kanssa – Med en rönn.
The audiences where also able to follow the event trough insta-live @harakan_taiteilijatalo.
