Ola Lanko Fixed & Fluid
During the Room on the Roof residency for the Bijenkorf and Unseen, Ola created Fixed & Fluid, a photogenic installation consisting of display materials and everyday objects from the Bijenkorf warehouse.
Reusing and recycling these items, she changes their original meaning and concentrates on the hidden structures beyond what is typically exposed. The work combines a fluid installation fixed in a photograph, in which a game transpires between the viewer and what is on display.
Ola Lanko is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work takes unexpected forms, ranging from photography to experimental cooking below 0 ° C. A vital element in the artistic drive is to challenge how we see and experience the world around us. Ola plays with people’s perceptions and senses, infusing hints of curiosity, discovery, and surprise.
