Pia Männikkö: masking tape scultptures, 2010

Masking tape, wood, concrete and metal, 210 cm x 160 cm x 140 cm

“Pia Männikkö’s huge sponge-like sculpture, delicately crafted from tiny masking tape funnels, and her ambitious installation that sees her cover an entire studio floor with clay, textured by the tread of her own feet, are breathtaking successes heightened by their popularity with the general public. Our relationship to space and volume are key elements to Männikkö’s projects and her work should definitely not be missed. The clay floor is particularly striking and original, maintaining the fun, childlike quality prevalent throughout the degree show.”
