Detail from the (Unravelling) sculpture installation. ”(Un)ravelling” is a sculpture installation where hand-bent scrap metals form an architectural structures breaking free wandering through the space. Found and collected metal pipes have been bent using a traditional technique employed by blacksmiths, where the pipes are filled with sand and heated in a for- ge. The metals bear traces of their previous conditions, uses, and who crafted the metal. In the installation, interconnected metal parts weave into themes of unraveling and reweaving, the circulation, movement of materials, and its potential to reorganize and reshape. The work was exhibited in Porvoo Art Hall 29.3.-5.5.2024, and was part of Vehviläinen’s master’s thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki.
