Patched Culture

mixed media, dimensions variable, 2014

The work of art consists of the hate talk and racist shouts, which Dzamil Kamanger has faced in Finland, and foreigners opinions on the Finns collected by Kalle Hamm. Kamanger bead knitted selected quotations of the shouts and placed on the desk. Hamm printed foreigners' opinions by silkscreen on the Marimekko's famous poppy printed fabric, and placed them on the desk opposite of Kamanger's bead knitted works. Together they create the hate speech dialog between the Finns and the foreigners.
