Alkumunat / World Eggs
14cm x 8cm

”World Eggs” consists of imaginary bird eggs from which the world is reborn in the 2020s.
The project is inspired by the centuries-old traditions and myths in which the world was born from eggs.

These eggs are bringing together different elements, details, characters – differences in appearance and color. Each of these elements are symbolizing important qualities of nature and human which we need for the new better world to emerge.

Where time ends


(FI) Ceramic and light installation
Light biennial FLASH 3 – Light and death

2021 , Suomenlinna Helsinki

Alanko’s ceramic installation Where Time Ends consists of large stoneware ceramic stars, inspired by the real stars in the space.

Each piece has its own rhythm to shine and to extinguish. The underlying idea of this work of art is to raise thoughts about life after death and the end of time – what will happen to us and where will we go?

The story of Kalevala starts from the birth of world, where thebird Sotka (eng. Aythya) lays seven eggs on the knee of witchcalled Ilmatar. In the story, the eggs break into the sea andthe sky, the earth, the stars and the sun are born bringingalive the world we are living in.

In my work, I have updated the story to the The 21st century,where the eggs represent new and better world being born.These eggs bring together differences, appearance, color anddifferent details. They symbolise important qualities andelements of both, humans and nature, which we need so abetter world can be born.

The exact total number of initial eggs has not been determined.

Moniuszki

(FI) Solo exhibition in Galleria Uusi Kipinä, Lahti

Year: 2018

Collection of mixed media/texture paintings


The name Moniuszki comes from Alango’s studio space in Moniuszki Street, Łódź, Poland.

History is sweeping everywhere. The houses and buildings surrounding the street are old, layered and hidind hundreds of years on the surfaces of them. The yards have dried up, become wild and harvest and turn into glorius gardens. The cobblestones of the street were worn and stick out here and there and every step is uneven – being same time changed to new.


Behind two big iron doors from 1887, hides a small studio inside – there all the paintings in the exhibition have been created.

Like Moniuszki, Alango’s works are researching new and old – shadows and light -textures and surfaces changing and making their stories from the travels which she just begun.
