Museum of History & Contemporary Art – Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, Turku, Finland. Heidi Hove was one of three Danish artists Liveart.dk curated for the Turku Biennial 2013.
Heidi Hove is inspired by the past – by the archeaological fragments in Aboa Vetus and two childhood memories. One is a piece of glass from the garden, which hurt her foot. The other is about her granddad, a farmer, who collected all the stones, he found in the ground. In her installation, Heidi exhibits pieces of glass and porcelain from the childhood garden, along with a designers vision for the missing parts. Another part of her installation consists in the stone-monument from her granddads garden, combined with a very big stone actually freighted from his garden.
