Härkönen’s works often portray physical experiences of an individual in relation to a community, experiences that are difficult to verbalize. They urge the viewer to stop and let the subtle elements form spaces where one can place oneself in a landscape of otherness, separateness and experiences of alternate realities. The minimalist and meditative works form as a result of the combined effect of visible structures, an empty space and the viewer’s presence.
