TEXTILE ART AND DESIGN
ADOPTION, PART II
Erika Kelter’s Master’s thesis consists of a communal work of art called Adoption, which began during the Remix exhibition in Fiskars from 14 May to 1 October 2006, and a written section. The exhibition consisted of soft toys, which the exhibition visitors could adopt. The condition for adoption was that the adopter send a picture of the adopted toy in its new home or with its new family. The written part of the final thesis work examines the work of art in relation to the gallery space, the viewer, the artist, and the field of art in general. The MOA07 exhibition displays a collage of the pictures taken by the adopters.
