Artist Hanna Råst

Tolarintie 6, Helsinki

Different layers of history and time come together in Hanna Råst’s collage work, Chronology, which has been integrated into the awning of Pohjois-Haaga primary school. The work weaves together childhood memories with different eras of history and untold events. Råst has gathered photographs and drawings from archives and created a collage that extends to different periods of history. The artist hopes that the work will kindle students’ curiosity and interest in history, time, and geology.

The collage has been installed under the school building’s awning and can only be seen when stood under it. The idea of positioning the work out of direct sight is connected to the notion of discovery and the uncovering of new knowledge that shapes our historical narratives. This work expands on themes Råst has addressed in her broader artistic practice.

The work was produced under the Percent for Art programme, and it belongs to the collection of the City of Helsinki, managed by HAM Helsinki Art Museum.
