Felicia Honkasalo

Grey Cobalt by Felicia Honkasalo bases itself around a collection of artefacts steeped in the landscape and history of her native Finland.
In a sequence of delicately arranged images, Grey Cobalt contains both a meditation on the legacy left by her metallurgist grandfather and a larger, sweeping narrative of how different orders of time and memory impress themselves upon the land, like a palimpsest. Now ‘rearranged and newly ordered, like a cabinet of curiosities’, together these images form a tactile experience of a lost world.

Honkasalo creates multiple narratives from seemingly disparate objects, forming alternative cosmologies from her own observations and sense of the distant past. A selection of notes written by Felicia’s grandfather, and expanded upon by herself, are included as epilogue and reflection upon the book and the objects exhibited; a musing on the historical moment in which they were created and the present they in turn disrupt.
