Within Me, Beyond Me

PrizeHonorable Mention in Sculpture
ArtistAnssi Sojakka

Within Me, Beyond Me presents the world of trauma via a series of sculptures. Abstract figures full of tension with their tendons poised to snap have frozen in place, almost as if to hold down a world that seemed to be bending and breaking apart. That world has now long since moved on and yet these shapes lie still. They are stuck in a fractured moment like a memory that was carved out with a kitchen knife and in their place only gaps in narrative and emptiness.
