Hertta Kiiski Hydra 2022 7min 40s, HD, 16:9 Score by Lau Nau Edition of 3

NOON Projects is thrilled to present Plasticenta, a site-specific installation by Finnish artist Hertta Kiiski. Plasticenta is Kiiski’s American debut, with a new series of photographs, textile works, clay reliefs, and the first showing of Hydra, a new film made for the exhibition.

Plasticenta imagines an alternative future, in which all life forms on the planet mingle with each other in harmony, with dreams of new alliances between species, transforming existing hierarchies. The work depicts a new kinship between the human and the inhuman, the organic and the inorganic, the animate and inanimate.

The exhibition title is a reference to new research where microplastic particles have been found in the placentas of unborn babies. Kiiski has worked with her 2 daughters and niece for 10 years, creating work together collaboratively.

The site-sensitive installation features a series of photographs, textile works, and clay reliefs that establish a space for breathing and listening. By blurring the everyday with fiction, speculative futures, and aesthetics, Kiiski aims to heighten one’s senses – creating a balm for the soul, in which to approach dark topics.

A series of 7 photo works in vermillion frames focus on the growth of plants, animals, humanimals, and the metamorphoses and symbiosis of bodies. Pictured are familiar yet altered landscapes, plants with eyes, heads levitating in the forest, and eyes depicted on a red-tinted seafloor.

Hydra, a new film created for the exhibition explores the love and companionship between two girls and their relationship with an immortal polyp found on a remote island. The film features a score created by Lau Nau.
