Saturday February 3, 2018, at 5pm

In and Out of Order concerns Kristiina Lahde's meticulous processes of ordering and reordering analogue materials to create sculptural wall works that reflect on the laborious gestures and methods that exist within the digital realm. The exhibition proposes a dialogue between a piece from the early era of the Internet and Lahde's new production with utilitarian materials such as rulers or library file cards.
