Prayer, from Close to You

by Minna Pöllänen

Prayer shows two hands swiping a smart phone screen. The devices are omitted from the image, leaving only the physical gesture of the hands visible. 

Prayer is part of Close to You, a series of hand-embroidered second-hand bed sheets realised during a four-month artist residency at HIAP in Helsinki in 2016.

Using news and social media imagery as its starting point, the work considers human interaction and closeness and their relationship to market society, consumerism and technology.

2016, Finland.
