Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
Join us at the Art Container on Sunday 9th June between 12-3:30pm for a collaborative investigation by Ptarmigan Helsinki co-dierectors (James Andean, Sari T.M. Kivinen, Amal Laala, and Marek Pluciennik). The collaboration will be based on traces left from the previous days of activity at the art container.
At 4pm Rebeca Clamp will present a concert. Rebecca Clamp is a singer songwriter pianist originally from Cambridge (UK) but now living in Finland. Noted for her passionate voice and idiosyncratic piano playing, she has a style which is entirely her own. Rebecca’s quirky lyrics examine the everyday from unusual perspectives: she draws you into a world where mobile phones run away to join nunneries and bearded female saints appear at five in the morning to give you advice on your love life. Her lyrical world is rich with the minutiae of life; insects, origami boats, smiles, and cigarette smoke in a beams of light all flicker through her songs. http://folkwit.com/artists/rebecca-clamp
