Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as/at Ptarmigan during these years.
A media performance on our inner and outer animals,
“My mom is a wolf, my dad…” is a talk about healing processes. What do our inner animals tell us? How can we enter into a dialogue with them? Current Ptarmigan artist-in-residence Camilla Graff Junior, aka former punk-rock musician Mona Motel, shares her experience based on autobiographical material, photos, video clips, a collection of plastic animals and family stories.
