Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger

Karoliina Paappa: The Girl and the Tiger | For Art's Sake-1 |

The die-cut scraps from our childhood come to life in Karoliina Paappa's exhibition Tyttö ja tiikeri (The Girl and the Tiger). A tiger has escaped from the pages of a scrap album and landed in a Jugendstil apartment. A lush display of fruit and flower baskets, typical imagery in die-cut scraps, surrounds coffee-drinkers, as deer and cats keep them company. Paappa's works joyfully play with scale, colour and the intertwinement of daily life and illusion. Viewers feel the urge to become part of Paappa's magical and strange fairy-tale world.

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it. More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to
