Cost: Free


Specifically for Incinerator Art Space Terhi Hakola and Paula Ngu create a space which invites viewers to contemplate on the fragility of life and the potential for renewal.  These two artists investigate the same theme from different perspectives.  Hakola’s video and sculptural installation use drama and catharsis in her exploration of loss and the subsequent possibility of hope.  She employs the motifs of fire and a wing to act as powerful metaphors for destruction and redemption.  Ngu works with watercolour, a monochromatic palette and abstraction to take viewers into quiet reflection of existence by mapping the time and emotions through daily mundane tasks.
