  • Description
    The series of Popcorn artworks contains conceptual playfulness based on dichotomies. The solemn and the banal, fragile and strong, light and heavy meet in the popcorn sculptures. In popular culture, popcorn is a snack strongly associated with movies, children’s parties and nibbling while watching TV. It serves as a metaphor for detachment, being on the outside. Popcorn is eaten when events are watched from the sidelines.

    Porous popcorn sinks into the ceramic mass, it burns away during firing, but its form remains. This is like magic. The end result is a mystery, a wonderful play of materials, which one views with unbelief. The popcorn in Kulju’s artworks is the form of popcorn, which in reality is valuable as a material.

    Unique contemporary ceramics
    materials: porcelain, popcorn and glaze

    Veera Kulju (b. 1975) an artist graduated from the Aalto University works with textiles, ceramics and video. She has showcased her work both in Finland and internationally. She aims to assemble installations characterized by abundant fragility and an atmosphere of permanence and timelessness. Although Kulju's works encompass conceptual layers created through the materials, the aim is for viewing them to be physically experiential. Through the materiality and artistic idiom of her works, Kulju succeeds in conveying how they feel. Just by looking at the artworks, the viewer feels the differences between matte and glossy, rough and smooth, warm and cold in his fingertips.
