Minna Soraluoma

Around the world in two hours crocheted food packages. 2008 Finland

Minna Soraluoma works with installations, objects made of various materials, and printed matter such as plastic packaging.

Soraluoma currently makes her art out of food packages. Her works often begin from compositional research from her archives of materials. Packages and packaging wrappers make our routine lives colourful. They take us on exotic plate-trips or help us heal ourselves, and the world, through eating. These works also remind us of the human instinct to collect. It is rare to want to throwaway the good containers that come along with things we buy.
