Made at Atelier S P A C E || Kärsämäki through programmes of Atelier S P A C E from June-August, 2018. Stories of summer, stories of endings, stories of love, stories of beginnings.

With Kahvila Tuokio

‘Hei Kesä’ poopup art installation x zinemaking atelier at Kahvila Toukio in Oulu with Oulu Arts Night, 16 August 2018. This was a great collaboration that wouldn’t have been possible without the effort and trust that people gave DK to make it happen. Big thanks to: Paavo Heinonen for including DK in the programme and inviting us to some great literary and music events in Oulu; to Anu Lakkapää of Kahvila Tuokio for sharing the venue with us.



With Arts & Letters Society Finland

IMPROVISING. DK and friend at Arts & Letters Society Finland put together an impromptu zine show. DK’s Dipika Kohli was part in the Air FROSTERUS artist residency from June-August, 2018. During that time, this was the first and last popup installation, with teas and zines, that happened over an afternoon of music in the world-famous architectural icon, Paanukirkko, or ‘Shingle Church.’ Special thanks to Iiris for inviting Dipika to Air FROSTERUS in Kärsämäki.
