A lamp lit a room on a night of a kind. A tree has fallen, now there is a hut. by Sonja Donner
A lamp lit a room on a night of a kind. A tree has fallen, now there is a hut. Sonja Donner’s artist’s book is a pocket companion inviting people to gather around it, much like a table or a meal might. It traces the artist’s search for a dwelling as a space, as a community and as a mental state in places and things as she visits, befriends and spends time with them. Donner’s works find their realisation where people assemble to listen to each other and share the experience of being in the world together. The book forms a carry-on archive recorded in photographic notes and short literature including an essay on avian architecture by curator Elina Suoyrjö.
