Valentina Karga: Banana Mummy at Photographic Gallery Hippolyte


The exhibition collaboration between the Saari Residence and Photographic Gallery Hippolyte Banana Mummy presents artist and architect Valentina Karga's long term artistic research on the circulation of energy and matter amid escalated ecological urgencies. Welcome to the opening on 3 October, 5 - 7 p.m. The exhibition is open 4–27 October 2019.

As a starting point for this exhibition, Valentina Karga has chosen a banana, a presumably stock item of organic matter, and a pyramid that has been believed to act as a carrier for supernatural powers. In ancient Egypt, there was a myth that pyramidical form can preserve any living thing and thereby stop the process of decay.
