Eyes as Big as Plates


In 2011, the Norwegian-Finnish artist duo Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen began a project to study explanations from Norwegian folklore about natural phenomena. Since then, the artists travelled to fifteen countries and Eyes as Big as Plates – part sculpture, part installation and part photography – has evolved into an ongoing exploration of how contemporary humans relate to nature and our surroundings.
