Suva (Facebook), a dear friend of fugitive-radio, introduced his new self-made instrument, Time, at myymälä2 on Saturday afternoon, 30 January, to a enthusiastic crowd of fans, friends and supporters.
As described in his notebook, the instrument is made from the frame of a metal fan, long forgotten in his attic, and the frame of a watchtower clock and round wooden objects the artist found at a fleamarket. Working with his hands — binding, stretching and gluing — Suva arrived at this sculptural object-instrument. After incorporating a contact-microphone into the assemblage, ‘Time was born’.
In April-May, myymälä2 will host an exhibition by Suva and we are planning to collaborate on an event — stay tuned!
