The work makes use of soundless cracking agent, an expansive mortar, that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban densely built areas without any noise or vibration. The cracking is a result of pressure created by the expanding agent. In the installation the moment when the stones crack is unpredictable. Whereas the new, silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in urban construction, in the exhibited piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours neither to the stuff or viewer’s schedules. The stones are cracking in their own time.

Sari Palosaari’s exhibition consists of two installations. While creating new situations, they also address issues that affect the built environment and thereby our everyday life. The works were inspired by new building materials that change the perception of time and space in our living environment.

It’s A Silent Agent Doing Its Thing makes use of a soundless cracking agent, expansive cement that was developed for splitting rock and concrete in urban construction sites without any noise or vibration. The moment when the stones crack cannot be determined beforehand, as it is the result of pressure created by the expanding cement. But whereas the silent and unobtrusive method improves efficiency in construction, in Palosaari’s piece it works in the opposite direction. The time in the installation makes no concession to the gallery’s opening hours or viewers’ schedules. The piece also features a studio recording of the sound of stone splitting.

Building Images extends the Hippolyte exhibition space with a glass-walled structure that comes to contain traces of human gestures and activity. Increasingly common in modern construction, glass walls highlight issues of showing, concealment and observation by presenting them in our everyday environment in new ways, forcing life inside these transparent spaces to adapt to reciprocal gazes. “I am fascinated by intentional and unintentional bodily action associated with dwelling in architectural spaces. Transparent spaces challenge our bodily existence as our life takes place in an intermediate place between the private and the public space,” says Sari Palosaari.
