The Ivy Circle Berlin, of which the CAA Berlin is a part, invites you to an "open studio" of visual artists, including our own alumna Helena Kauppila (PhD, Mathematics). The event takes place Sunday, October 1, from 13:00 to 20:00 at Ackerstrasse 81, with several resident artists opening their studios to the public. The Ivy Circle will meet at noon that day at Helena's studio - about one hour before the formal opening - for some coffee, light finger foods, light networking, and a few brief words from Helena about the work at hand. To access the event, ring the buzzer of Studio "Kauppila" and go to the 4. OG of the building. Other participating artists for the open studios include: Herman Baeten, Fritz Balthaus, Katja Deutschmann, Romuald Etter, Rolf Giegold, Eva Grottum, Ulrike Hansen, Eeva Hauss, Reinhard Haverkamp, Gabriele Herzog, Ruth Hommelsheim, Esther Horn, Roswitha Jacobi, Katrin Hersten, Jürgen Reichert, Vincent Tavenne, Thi Hong Linh, Tsuki D Sureiya, Ina Weber, and Herbert Wiegand. Musical performances will take place at 15:30 and 17:30. To RSVP please email Carl Cruse of Princeton at [email protected].
About Helena Kauppila: A mathematician turned visual artist, Kauppila is fascinated by complex systems and the phenomena of emergence. Although her work is representational, she derives her understanding from mathematics, which can get quite abstract. While her colorful canvases may appear haphazard and unplanned, there is a systems thinking behind them. Her work often touches on the order of the genome, the structure of mathematical theories, and the visceral human connection to nature and intuitive experience.
